Last night installed Windows 7 Pro using bootcamp.
Like most people I was not immediately able to access the internet. Because Windows doesn't automatically detect my Wireless Adapter on my Macbook Pro 2011 i5 Processor, running Lion.
I went to Device Manager through windows, right clicked it, hit update (or upgrade don't quite remember) anyways I selected choose manually. I went to Broadcom under developers. And I've selected almost every possible one and every time I get "Device can't run (10)" or something of the sort.
I've scoured through forum after forum. Nothing seems to work. Please help.
Much thanks.
Zach

Install the bootcamp driver disc that was made while you were using the bootcamp assistant.

I've been struggling with the same problem all day, too.

I've tried this and it doesn't fix the problem.

I installed Boot Camp drivers, updated from 3.0 to 3.1 to 3.2 and nothing helped the problem.

No you do not install the bootcamp 3.x drivers! Use the bootcamp 4.1 drivers. These are updated and should have been created when you created the bootcamp partition using bootcamp assistant.

I didn't use bootcamp assistant.

bootcamp assistant wouldn't let me partition my hard drive and install win 7.

Setup partition via disk utility and setup boot menu with refit

http://refit.sourceforge.net/

I then used my Snow Leopard disc to install the bootcamp drivers/utilities.

I don't see any download link to boot camp 4.1

http://support.apple.com/downloads/#bootcamp

Mind showing me where I can download these boot camp 4.1 drivers? Because I sure can't find them.

My mistake. It's 4.01 not 4.1
