    Wireless problem


    I have a new install of Mint (13 I think).
    Wireless did work but now it doesn't although it still does for Windows Vista.
    It is now away from the router so I can't test wired again.

    Any ideas?
    Code:
    cat /etc/network/interfaces
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    Code:
    ifconfig -a

    i believe every interface should be mentioned in /etc/network/interfaces
