hello all.
new to this discussions in apple.

sorry if my questions below are a repost or misplace the thread because this is my first post.

so, i have this brand new macbook white late 2009 (MC207) and i installed an original Windows 7 Home Premium via BootCamp. it all works well, i mean all of the component. almost. but i noticed one problem, which is the wi-fi connectivity.

i've checked the issue with the device manager and it turns out that the wi-fi adapter isnt recognized or like some kinda dont have a driver installed. i've tried to update the driver direct from the device manager but it said that windows cant find any driver that suits the adapter.

so everytime i wanna use a wi-fi connection via windows 7, i cant.

can anyone help me?

thanx in advance.

    On the Mac side... menu, choose, "About This Mac" then select More Info.

    See if it lists the Wi-fi component name/manufacturer.

    They usually use Broadcom.

    Either that or you will have to wait until Apple releases Bootcamp Windows-7 drivers.

    BootCamp Drivers for Windows 7 were released on January 19, 2010.

    32-bit can be found here -
    64-bit can be found here -

    As you're having WiFi issues you'll need to plugin to download them. Upgrading to the latest driver set should resolve the WiFi issues. I had the same problem with a brand new MacBook last week, the 3.0 drivers wouldn't allow WiFi until I upgraded to the 3.1 drivers.
