    Wireless/Drivers Issues with Bootcamp (HELP!)
    Hello,

    I am running a 17" MacBook Pro. Yesterday I purchased Windows XP Professional. I experimented with both BootCamp and Parallels and after having read about many issues with both, I realized that I need to run BootCamp if I want to run 3D games (Counter-Strike: Source).

    I installed everything perfectly for XP in BootCamp. When I start up in Windows, everything runs smoothly, until I try to go online.

    I am on a wireless internet in the college house that I live in. When I run parallels or OSX, I get wireless perfectly.

    When I go into the Device Manager in BootCamp, there are issues with the ethernet controller, pci device, etc., etc.

    I just need to know which Network Adapters I need to install...I think????

    PLEASE HELP!!!!! I remember why I switched to OSX!

    Wow, I finally figured it out and it was as simple as carefully reading the Boot Camp instructions. Funny how that works.

    Just insert your Snow Leopard or Leopard DVD (whichever you have) while Windows 7 is running. The drivers will be installed automatically. Once they're installed, you can go to the Apple web site and download any updates for Boot Camp. You likewise do that from Windows.
