Cannot get bootcamp to find my network. Everything works great in Parallels. I want to check both out and make up my mind as to which one to use.

More than likely it means that the driver wasn't loaded properly when you installed it. Check the device manager and see if its loaded correctly.

Did you use the Bootcamp assistant in theMac OSX to create your windows environment?

Yes, I did. I'm new to Mac stuff. The Bootcamp Wizard has three choices. One to create install software for a USB memory stick. One to get all of the drivers and necessary software to make things work. One to install Windows in the Bootcamp partition. I did two of them because somewhere in the instruction it said item #2 was not necessary since the install software had all the drivers and necessary Apple software to make Windows work. That's not the case I believe. 

I've since deleted the Bootcamp partition in favor of Parallels software. SSDR runs very nicely with Parallels. I may retry Bootcamp at a later date. Thanks for responding.

I believe you have to use "bridge" in networks configuration while using parallels. I had same problem until I selected bridge the networks
