What version of Mint, and what kind of network card is in your laptop? If it's a Broadcom card, there are drivers/firmware for it...run lspci and look for card output, and also look at the output of the dmesg command, to see if you're getting any messages about the driver or firmware. A quick Google search pulls up lots...did you look there??
