Netbook converted from Xp to Mac OS X network problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm currently working on a netbook that has been converted from Windows XP Pro to a Mac OS X.
On the netbook, it says it has a wireless b/g card in it, yet cant see a wireless network, although it does work wired in, and I know very little about the gui of Mac. Can anyone help me out and explain how I can get the wireless card up and running?

Mac OSX is very specific about what cards are supported, the best thing to do is if you have a Dell, HP, MSI, ect. netbook, go look at their specific forums as most have a section for OSX in it, along with compatibility charts, what kext to install to get certain items working ect.
