Help with wireless? (Mint 13 MATE 32-bit)
Hello everyone! I'm new to both Linux and forums in general, so I'll keep this short.
I recently installed Mint 13 MATE 32-bit to my Dell Inspiron 1501 computer. I set it up dualbooting because I want a safety net in case Linux goes to crap by some way. (with my luck, I wouldn't be surprised)
Anyways, I installed it and all, but for some reason my wireless won't work. My wireless works on my Windows side of my computer (Windows 7 Ultimate) but not on the Linux side.
I installed the driver for it (Broadcom STA wireless driver) but now it doesn't even give me an option to use wireless. It did before I installed it, but obviously I couldn't use it because it wasn't installed. Now it is installed and the wireless option dropped off completely.
If anyone has any advice or a way to fix it, I would be very grateful.
