I installed windows XP with boot camp and everything went perfect. The only problem is the wifi doesn't work with the windows XP side. It doesn't even have the option to detect wireless conections.

Any help would be appreciated.


Oh and 1 other question, on the windows side, is there a way to use the track pad to click instead of the button? I like clicking the trackpad better than the button.

You'll need to go into windows control panel and set up the wireless network manually. Not as easy as with the Apple side of things.

As for the track pad I believe that if you lft the left finger off and tap with the right it works as a right click. I don't do it so I'm only going from memory of something I read elsewhere.

you need to tap two fingers on the pad to right click....

did you install the mac windows drivers that came with your leopard cd....
just insert the cd while using xp, and the installer will appear.

I have the EXACT same problem....I switch to using windows XP and it says I have no internet connection. I'm on a laptop and it doesnt give me the option to connect to my home wireless cable modem. I dont want to have to set up a new wireless network just to get internet.....Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hey
I have been having the same problem with no wireless on xp in bootcamp with MBP
here is what I did

Google 7.7.0.329
the first result I get is
Atheros AR5xxx/AR9xxx Series Wireless Network Diver 7.7.0.329 Windows XP(x32/x64)

download that file

go to OPEN NETWORK SETTINGS
Right click your wireless card should be atheros....something or another....
now
go to properties the General tab Select Configure-on the right at the top
in the new window select the driver tab
select update driver
select install manually and point to where ever you downloaded the driver above to ....Voilia...it worked for me...i think that is all the steps...HOPE I HELPED!!
