    Ok, iv searched these forums for 3hours, only just registard to post this thread.

    So i bought the lastest version on iMac (20" model) and the guy said you cn also install windows on it (as this is for my mother and she can barly use windows and i can fix most windows problems so i thought i may as well put windows on it).

    Excelent computer this is, fast, sleek, good graphics, just few minor problems to do with windows (go figure XD).

    The problem im having is that it has found my wireless internet (took some screen shoots).

    I installed windows though Bootcamp, it was new version of windows xp with service pack 2. I did install the osx cd onto windows, but that still didnt work.

    I also downloaded Airport Utility, but it cant find my card.

    I looked around for some drivers but wasnt sussesful.

    Any help would be great thanks, and thnak you in advance.





    (this screen shot isnt of my connection, its of someone elses but i uploaded to show you what was with mine, hope it helps)

    Are you using WPA2 security? Windows Xp doesnt allow for WPA2 security out of the box. You have to download the update from Microsoft. Connect a cable, do all the patching, and then disconnect the cable and you should be golden.

    I had this same problem just a few weeks ago :)
