Alright, I'm just creating a new thread so I can solve this as quick as possible. I successfully installed Windows onto my MacBook. The last step I need is to connect to my linksys wireless router. I know the name and pw to my network, but I am not sure how to connect. I already have a Wireless Card in my laptop as well. I go into Network Connections but everything I try seems to fail. I've looked for tutorials on google, unsuccessful. If anyone can post a few simple steps to resolve this, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Normally, there's a on/off switch to your wireless connection on the side of the laptop somewhere. Make sure that's on. I then go to control panel, network and internet connections, network connections, then right click on Wireless Network Connection and click 'view available networks'. That's what I do and I'm of no use after that. Hope it works.

Yeah, that's what I figured would work. But after I get to Network Connections, there is no Wireless Network Connection.

is ur wireless card recognized by windows? make sure of this first, check device manager under system. you might have to install the drivers and software to get it to detect and connect to your wireless network. im pretty sure that the built-in wireless card in your mac is not automatically detected by windows.

I am under Device Manager, but don't know what to look for to find my wireless network.
