    Hey all. Sorry if this has been asked before.

    I just installed Windows XP on my mac using BootCamp. Whenever I try to use Internet Explorer to access the internet, it won't let me. I tried that wizard to set up an internet connection or whatever and that doesn't work either. Not having internet on my Windows side is no fun at all. :(

    Anyone know how to fix this? I want to use the internetz!

    So...

    Did you install the drivers off of the Leopard DVD? Please lay off the CAPS in the future.

    Sorry about the caps!

    I put in the Leopard DVD/s and I didn't see anything about drivers. Do I have to put them in while using Windows?

    Do you have a wired or wireless connection that you're trying to use?
    BTW I would suggest using firefox over IE unless you specifically need to use IE for certain websites.

    EDIT-yes you have to put the leopard disk in while using Windows OS to install the mac drivers
