I bought my mac in 2009, it has snow leopard and its up to date.

I install windows 7 using bootcamp. It wont let me connect to the internet and it wont pick up my wifi.

 

I entered my Mac OS X install dvd to download the

drivers(while in windows 7) and Ive tried to repair the drivers about 5 times. Oh and ive gone in and downloaded all the drivers individualy.

 

Then when i go to download the new driver through my bootcamp assistant it gives me a message saying Download could not continue, The Windows

support software is not available.

 

I've read about a million arcticles, My sound works while in windows and so does everything else. Its just my internet. PLEASSE HELP

    There is no Windows Support Software download for Snow Leopard. The Windows Support Software is on your Snow Leopard Install disk. Read and follow the Bootcamp Install Manual for Snow Leopard http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/Boot_Camp_Install-Setup_10.6.pdf.

     

    You run setup.exe on your Snow Leopard disk from within Windows.

    You said

     

    "Then when i go to download the new driver through my bootcamp assistant it gives me a message saying Download could not continue, The Windows

    support software is not available."

     

    This indicates you are trying to download the Support software from within Bootcamp Assistant. This is not the correct procedure for installing the Support

    Software for Snow Leopard systems, which apprarently your system is.

     

    Read the instrructions. When in Windows, insert your Snow Leopard Install disk and run setup which is located on your Snow Leopard Install disk.

    I already entered the snow leopard install disk and downloaded all the drivers, my volume,bluetooth,keyboard,mousepad everything works. its just my internet can't pick up any wifi's. I even went into the disk while in windows and downloaded all of the drivers individually multiple times. i also repaired drivers multiple times but still no internet

    If you don't want to do it according to the instructions then there is nothing else I can add. It is clear from your posts that you continue to say that you are trying to download the drivers from within Bootcamp Assistant or by "downloading" the drivers. Once again, for Snow Leopard systems this is not how you get and install the Windows Support software.

     

    Good luck but if you continue to not follow the instructions you will need more than luck. I hope you get it working.

    so i will tell you the steps in the way i did it. tell me which steps i did wrong.

     

    -after windows was installed--

    1. enter snow leopard disc. (while in windows 7)

    2. download all the drivers, so volume and everything work. (while in windows 7)

    3. repaired drivers multiple times (while in windows 7)

    4. downloaded each driver individually. (while in windows 7)

    5. after none of that got my internet to work  on windows i tried to download drivers useing bootcamp assistant but like you said that doesn't work for snow leopard.

     

    sorry i hope that makes more sense.

    Step 2, 3, 4, and 5 are incorrect.

     

    Step 2 should be run setup.exe. The drivers will be automatically installed. There will be no need to do anything else.

     

    Read the instructions I linked to.
