    Windows causes internet connectivity issues
    I recently put windows 7 on my mac with Leopard and it runs fine except it has some connectivity issues. I can connect to my wireless network just fine in OSX but when I go to windows 7 it connects for a short time and then says it has a connectivity problem. It will go in and out but i can never maintain a constant connection. What can I do? It also makes it so no one else in my house can connect which I found pretty strange.

    What piece of 3rd party A/V software did you install in Windows?
    It have a software Firewall?
    Turn it off.

    McAfee for sure does this.
    Have one computer say no to a java update, a flash update, or just about anything else - It will block every other computer on the network.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
