I don't have a wireless connection on the computer with Mint so I can't give you any step by step. Check the options in the window. You should have some option to search for wireless connections. On most systems I have used you will usually have the ability to set four different connections and you will have to then select the one you want. If you configured it on your friends computer, it would be using that until you change it.
Thanks for the info i looked at that option before all it shows is my friends home hub and a box for add when you click that box it you get a page that wants all the info mac address ,ssid, bssid and all that stuff which i dont have all i am looking to do is log on when i am out and about i deleted my friends home hub to see if i could start again that did nothing now i dont have any connection on wi-fi at all, as i said in my thread i connected to his home hub by putting his password in and that was it now i cant do that.
The strange thing is if i turn my wi-fi of on the keyboard and switch it on again i get a icon on the desktop that wi-fi has been found click on icon to open i do this but nothing happens all i can say for a few days i had wi-fi in the notebook using my friends hub so that means the set up is in the notebook
Is there a system restore in Linux i could try and get the hub back again
