You can only use your Airport with one OS at a time. If you have OS X using it, XP will be able to piggyback.

So you're saying you can boot into either XP or Leopard, that XP connects to the network and Leopard does not. This is a toughie. What I would recommend doing is completely disconnecting from the network from XP, then connecting using Network Diagnostics. You can access Network Diagnostics by going to Applications, and then Utilities. Make sure that you choose the right type of security (None/WEP/WPA) and that you enter the right password.

SOURCE: could not connect to campus wifi through leopard

Your campus probably uses some sort of "extra" security with their wireless networks eg, 802.11X which may require extra setup. (there is a tab for setting this up in your airport network preferences - look for 802.11X).
Try looking for specific setup information on your campus IT website, they may have detailed instructions to help people having the same problems.
Failing that ask your campus IT department for help.
There's little else I can suggest unless you reply with more specific information on why Leopard can't connect - eg, what exactly happens when you try to connect

Sometimes performing a PRAM reset on your laptop will sort out WiFi and Bluetooth issues.
Restart the computer, and before the grey screen appears, hold down the Command(?), Option, P, and R keys simultaneously. Keep the keys down until the computer re-boots again and you hear the startup chime for the second time. It should work after that.

Apple Macbook Pro does not connect to wireless network


The antennas in the Macbook Pros have had an issue with reception due to the aluminum housing of the laptop but, should still receive decent reception just not as much as a plastic Macbook or plastic PC laptop. It could be possible that the antenna's cables have become disconnected from the Airport Extreme card inside your Macbook Pro, that the card itself is faulty or damaged or that the Antennas themselves have been damaged in some way. As always make sure you have the latest updates and have installed any driver updates from Apple regarding your Airport Extreme card. Here's an article that may help eliminate any wireless interference that may be affecting your signal strength. Apple - Wireless Interference hope this helps, if so don't forget to comment, vote, etc. Thank you.

Could not connect to campus wifi through leopard


You may need to access the network with the ASCII password. Is there a system administrator you can contact to get this code? It will be a very long string of characters and replaces the typical password you seen in many Airport type setups.

Can't connect!


First of all... Unplug the modem, unplug the Airport (WiFi router) and turn off the Airport connectivity in your MacBook.
After 5 full minutes... Plug in the modem.
Wait 2 full minutes... Plug in the Airport.
Wait 1 full minute... Turn on the Airport connectivity in your MacBook.
After all of that... 
If you're still not back up and running and you're using an Apple Airport, open the Applications folder, open Utilities, open Airport Utility.
If you're using any other type of WiFi router, use the Network Diagnostics button that should show up in the web browser window when you try to go to any website.

You should only use Windows xp for running a program that is not yet available from Apple. There shouldn't be much reason to link to the net while in Windows. Also while in Windows you are wide open to any viruses that exist. Try getting your work done without getting on the net, then go back to your Apple format. There you are 99% free of viruses. … Still need to link onto the net let me know I will ask at our Apple Computer Club on Monday

MacBook Pro/ ParkerVision SIGNALMAX WR1500/ Compatability?


It looks like the product is no longer supported by ParkerVision and no Mac driver was ever produced. The device you mention uses proprietary technology to get the performance you are seeing.

I would bet that it would be easier to replace your router with a new one that uses industry standards that all platforms support.

Depending on the amount of RAM that you have, you may need to add RAM. If you have less than 2GB, you should upgrade the RAM. The other issue could be memory in general since you're running both systems and obviously have a smaller drive than would be available if you were only running one. I would remove the partitions and use one boot drive to see if that makes any difference. Just back your files up first.
