Ok. I have an iMac OSX and have installed boot camp onto it.
I am able to transfer into windows XP perfectly fine however it will not connect to the internet. The connection is fine, changing from good to very good however the status will perpetually say 'acquiring network address'. The only reason I want to use boot camp is to play Call Of Duty 6 though because it wont 'acquire the network address' I am unable to play single player or online.

Please help,

Thanks.

Are you trying to connect wireless? (I'm assuming you are) If so, are you using a router? Is the SSID broadcast turned on? Are you using encryption?

Have you gone through all the Windows settings?

Have you tried connecting an ethernet cable to your iMac to see if it works that way?

As you can see from all the questions above, we need to know more about what you've done and your setup in order to help you trouble shoot the problem.

Regards.
