    I installed xp with boot camp but now my wireless is not working. I switched back to Mac and it worked. What's the problem here?

    I have searched but didn't find a solution.

    Thanks

    Have you set up the TCP/IP settings in Windows correctly?

    Right click on your network connection (once connected to the network), go to Properties, TCP/IP, and make sure you will everything out.

    Windows seems to struggle with automatically configuring networks.

    PROBLEM SOLVED
    I changed my router settings
    It was at WPA, I reset my router and changed it to WPA2, now it works.
