    This is the wireless card and should be supported in pretty much any distro out of the box. Occasionally, you need to install some extra firmware, but you shouldn't need to in Ubuntu or Mint.

    Do you see the interface listed with iwconfig?

    What is the output of
    Code:
    dmesg | grep firmware

    ~ $ iwconfig

    You should be able to launch the network tool now and see your device. It's called eth1.
