Hi Guys,

I have Installed Windows XP on my mac and the wireless internet does not work. I have tried with an internet cable and that works fine.

I have installed all the XP drivers from the mac install CD, have updated the drivers and still nothing.. If i try to connect to a network, it just keeps conneting and nothing happens.

Thanks if someone can help, or knows what this is!

Welcome to the Mac Forums.

It would be helpful if you provided the model year of your Mac and which version of OS X it's running. We really need that to determine which version of Boot Camp is installed as there have been updates which means new drivers.

Wireless not working in XP almost always has to do with not using or having the proper drivers installed. Open up your Control Panel, System, and bring up the hardware tree. What does it show for the wireless adapter? Is there a ! over the entry?

And did you run the wireless connection wizard?
