    Are you switching via bootcamp (rebooting) or some virtualization program like Parallels.

    If you are rebooting, did you use the driver disk that you create as part of the bootcamp install to put the drivers in for your devices? Even then, you still need to set up the wireless on the new machine providing settings ad passwords. That information is not transferred in the setup.

    I switched via bootcamp and a Vista CD. Then to load windows I hold option on start-up. Vista says it cannot find a wireless card.

    I am a life-long PC user so I am not too sure how to make myself clear, I hope this gives you enough info.

    When you installed Vista via Boot Camp did you put your Leopard disk in to install the Boot Camp drivers after Vista was installed and up and running?

    No, I ran bootcamp, installed Vista. Switched to Vista, then saw that it does not recognize a wireless card.

    You really needed to print out the boot camp manual when it prompted to when first opening up the Boot Camp Assistant. You are missing all of the drivers that are needed for Vista, you need to log into Vista, put the Leopard disk in and install the Boot Camp drivers from that disk. That will enable the Wireless Card, Blue Tooth, sound, video, keyboard, etc....
