    linux mint wireless on lenovo 3000 n100


    I am a computer dummy for sure but after vista crashed i installed linux mint elyssa. However I cannot get wireless internet. I read some of the forums and the "code language" gives me a headache. Is there a download or a disc I can use to fix this or is it a hopeless situation?

    Actually, I have found Linux Mint to be one of the easier distros for setting up a wireless.

    In the main menu, open this application:

    Administration --> Hardware Drivers

    There should be a selection for a wireless driver to install. It may not have the same name as the wireless, because Linux uses the chip name.

    You need to first have a wired internet connection. Then click on the box in the "Enabled" column to put a check in it. It should then download and install the driver. The "Status" column should then say "In use".
