Mint linux wireless problems
 
I have a new install of Mint and I set up wireless and it worked fine.
But now it doesn't come on automatically or at all.
Any ideas?

Some testing questions/suggestions:

Does wired still work?

Try creating a new user and testing under the new user to see whether the problem is global or isolated to that one user.

Please post the output of this command, making sure to enclose them in "code" tags, which become available when you click "Go Advanced" down there at the bottom of the Quick Reply window; that makes it easier to read.

Code:

ifconfig -a
Also, please post the contents of the /etc/network/interfaces file, also surrounding it with "code" tags.

This should help get the troubleshooting started.

Apologies for the delay I had technical difficulties (the toddler hid the usb sticks).

Wired did work but the PC got moved to a place where there is only wireless (I am not 100% in charge in my house)
Code:

cat /etc/network/interfaces
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

Code:

ifconfig -a

Any ideas anyone? Is there a different wireless card that I could buy that would work? I want to use Linux again
