I recently installed Windows 7 Ultimate through Bootcamp. I'm running OSX 10.6.5. I upgraded to Bootcamp 3.1, and then inserted my Snow Leopard install disc to make sure I had all of the latest drivers.

My problem is connecting to the internet via wireless router. I'm using a 500 GB Time Capsule as my router. While in Windows 7, I can see my network. I just simply cannot connect to the network. Wireless web is working flawlessly in OSX.

Thanks for any helpful suggestions!

You need to download the newer drivers from apple support site for wifi on windows 7.
Took me forever to figure this out.

You're supposed to download and install Boot Camp 3.1 after all the Snow Leopard drivers have been installed from the DVD. And you do it from within Windows 7. Did you do this?

Also, you say you can see your network but not connect. Are you using any form of encryption from the TC? If you are, turn it off temporarily and try again. And lastly, are you getting any errors from Windows when you try to connect?

chscag,

thanks for the response - I did install BC3.1 after Snow Leopard DVD drivers. Still no luck. I'm busy tonight, but I'll try to post the error message and check TC encryption. I'll post back.
