    Wireless Internet Not Working Using Windows XP w/ boot camp
    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.

    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!!
