    Total Noob Wireless Setup Help Needed!


    Decided to make the leap from Windows to Linux Mint. Finally got the install on my EeePC Netbook, but cannot get connected to our wireless network. Here is the output from the WirelessSetup.txt utility in the 'Start Here' thread. (Big thanks for that, btw.)

    Any help is much appreciated. This netbook is a gift for my wife, and I want it to be ready to roll ASAP. Thanks again!

    Hello and Welcome!

    I see the wireless card is detected (wlan0) and you have the correct driver loaded (brcm80211).
    Does your computer have an on/off switch for your wireless card?
