Hello.

I've just finished installing Windows 7 on my Mac as it's essential for some of my work. Anyways, I'm having trouble connecting to the wireless at my home - it just doesn't find the wireless network card. I've tried some driver I found on cnet.com, but it hasn't changed anything. What should I do in order to get wireless working?

I'm using a MBP with Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)
QUOTE Thanks

Have you installed the drivers that come with Boot Camp? See page 8 here.

Thank you very much, vansmith! I'm now on Windows. However, for some reason I don't have sound. I've tried to install the Realtek drivers that I know is for sound, but there still isn't any. Can you help me out with that?

Also, is there any way to use the same keyboard as when I'm on Mac OS X?

You should be able to use the same keyboard - that shouldn't be a problem.

The sound drivers should be included with Boot Camp as well. In fact, all drivers should be. Did you go through that successfully?

It does somewhat work, but I cannot write characters like '@'

I did install the drivers successfully, yes.

Thanks in advance
