would be good to have some information of whats happening rather than just supply a title

 

How are you connecting usb, ethernet or wireless

Are you using the homehub

Does it work under mac os x

What versions of windows are you using

If connecting via wireless what adaptor are you using and is it enabled

 

If you can supply this information we may be able to give advice

have you the drivers for windows?

 

Apple aren't keen to get all their kit working with windows, that's why they charge an arm and a leg for it

 

once you find the drivers for it you should be ok

Go to solution

ask apple if they supply them for windows

 

if go into device manager see if the card is listed may have yellow explanation mark next to it

 

depending on chipset (ie broadcom, ralink, etc, etc) you may be able to download generic drivers

 

is there a reason why you want it working under xp as well as mac os, as if just for browsing and email no point in using windows for internet access

 

if for gaming you will experience some lag as wireless networking not the best for online gaming

My friend and I produce a church bulletin and we use Serif page plus to produce it and serif is only available on word, as most of the people send us stuff to put in it, send it on the internet, it is easer to use word and we both have matchbooks and have changed to btinternet

if you can't get the drivers working then use this solution

 

get a usb drive and format it as fat32

 

use windows xp to do the document and save it to the usb drive

 

use mac os to then upload the document from usb to the web

 

other solution is does office for mac os have same features as office for windows?
