I have a strange behavior under Windows 7.

I installed Mac OS X and Windows 7 on my MacBook Pro and can see my home Wifi under Mac OS X without any problems and connect to it just fine.

When I boot under Windows, I can see all the neighboring WiFis but not my own at all.

Did anyone else experience that? Any hints on what to do?

  1. connect with an ethernet cable.
  2. log in to the router's admin settings.
  3. change the channel that the wireless is broadcasting on.
  4. save the settings, resetting the router.
  5. when reset is complete look for the network again.
  6. repeat steps 2 - 5 if still not showing up.
  7. when ssid shows up connect & remove ethernet cable

Can you connect the router via wired? Did it use to work before OSX?

You could, just in case, reset the router using the paper-clip method (if applicable to your model).

If that doesn't help, this thread recommends using the latest
Broadcom Wireless LAN Driver for Microsoft Windows 7.

I can connect with a cable and everything works fine. I used it fine with Win7 before and still using it with another laptop. I will try to reset the router, although I feel it is more towards the Win7 side... –  deurk Nov 22 '10 at 13:53
    
Might be. But one step at a time. –  harrymc Nov 22 '10 at 14:03
    
Ok tried that and it didn't change anything. –  deurk Nov 24 '10 at 12:18
    
Also tried to remove the device and associated driver but it did nothing new. Home WIFI is still not visible nor accessible, even by giving SSID and password... –  deurk Nov 24 '10 at 12:19
    
Added another possibility (maybe a shot in the dark). –  harrymc Nov 24 '10 at 12:38
