First post on this forum, hello all. :D

I just installed Windows XP using bootcamp on my Macbook 4,1. When I click on "Network Connections in the Control panel, the only thing that comes up is this 1394 Net Adapter under LAN or High Speed. My computer has a Broadcom driver but its not detected. Under device manager, the only network adapter is the 1394 Net Adapter.
Can someone please help?

Thanks in advance

Welcome to the Mac Forums.

Have you installed the XP drivers from your OS X DVD? (Leopard, Snow Leopard)

Yes, it's very simple. You boot to Windows XP and then insert your Leopard DVD. Drivers will be installed automatically. If you've lost your Leopard DVD, you can buy a Snow Leopard install DVD direct from Apple for $29.99. You can likewise use that to install drivers. Without either, there is no legal way to obtain drivers as Apple does not make them available for download.
