"The problem is Apple doesn't provide a Boot Camp driver set for the Retina MacBook Pro yet. I had to use the Broadcom wireless driver from my SNB MacBook Pro to get WiFi working under Windows."

Okay, after a bit more of searching online, found the driver, installed it and it works. Here's the link for anyone else who might need: http://www.wireless-driver.com/broadcom-wireless-driver-utility-winxp-vista-win7-ver51001968/

Thanks.

Hi and welcome to Ask Different! Can you please you expand on your answer? Maybe a link and some instructions to the "latest apple support for windows" software you're referencing? As written, this answer is very low quality. For more information on how to answer questions please see our (FAQ)[apple.stackexchange.com/faq]. –  Ian C. Apr 8 '13 at 4:00
    
As said above, you answer the question, but all those little extras (links to support, forums, etc) are what really make an answer great. :) –  kevin9794 Apr 8 '13 at 5:24

I don't have a Retina Macbook Pro but what I would do in your case: Download trial of Aida64. It will help to detect network chip, then go to manufacturer's site and download drivers (probably that would be Windows 7 ones) for that chip.

Thanks, will try that out. But I can't go online without the driver so doubt Aida64 will help. –  Ankit Jul 3 '12 at 17:50
    
Anand notes in his website that it's the same card as the 2011 MBPs so the driver should be the same. It's the Broadcom BCM4331 single-chip 802.11n dual-band wireless solution adapter. –  Ankit Jul 3 '12 at 18:14
