    I installed Windows 7 Ultimate on my MBP but when I logged in I noticed I couldn't connect to the internet, let alone establish an internet connection or find one. Does this have something to do with it not having some sort of driver? All input is welcome, thanks.

    I'm pretty sure everything you need should be in one of the OSX install disks that came with your computer.

    Yep, it's called Bootcamp Windows Support Software. It should be on the OS X Install DVD. Make sure you don't update Windows until you install proper Apple issued drivers. Alternatively, you can download iTunes and use its Apple Software Update to check for any updates to drivers although, as your wifi doesn't work I guess it is not an option.


    Check out step 4 in this guide:

    A MBP which has come with Lion OS X at starting, no longer come with CDs. Check it out man.

    ----------

    Exactly, Bootcamp 4.0 is everything what you need. Just download Bootcamp 4.0 then use it to install drivers for your Windows 7 Ultimate. There're 2 ways to download it: Search and download it from Apple Support or Use Bootcamp.app in Mac OS to download "Windows Support ..."
    Hopes it'll be helpful for you

    I believe that you can only get the Boot Camp 4.0 drivers from the Boot Camp.app on OS X. I tried doing a search for the drivers a few weeks ago but the latest one available is driver version 3.3 for Snow Leopard users.

    How do I do this?
    Like I mean, I had already done this... before I installed.

    I'll do so again.

    Yep, you need to install bootcamp driver. Just insert your mac osx CD you got for your mac and it'll install everything for you smoothly.

    I don't have the Lion CDs bro. I bought like 3 days before it launched.

    UPDATE: I solved this. Thanks to everyone for their input.
