Okay, I'm setting up a poll. I've been trying for months for fix my wireless connectivity in Windows XP on my mac. I've searched Google, I've looked through forum upon forum, and I cannot find a solution to my problem. Everytime I've posted a thread on this forum, I get 5 or 6 people who say they're having the same problem, but no one who provides a solution. So I'm curious, how many people are having this problem? How many people have found a solution to this problem? Hence the poll. Please take this poll, and if you have any solutions, please post those as well.

I'm all bars in Windows and, at almost all times, have better connectivity than does my wife's system -- same MacBook Pros, she in OSX, me in XP under Boot Camp.

I'm running Parallels/XP on a Mac Book and I wasn't able to connect wirelessly for some reason. Haven't found the solution, and I'm stuck without being able to use Outlook with my company's IMAP servers.

Going to switch to Mail for IMAP but can't get that to work either. I'm going to try connecting via Ethernet once I run the cables.

When I originally installed XP on my MacBook I couldn't connect to the Internet wirelessly at all, but once the second set of drivers came out, I installed them and then reinstalled the first set for good measure and then wireless worked. :)
