Trying to get onto wireless network.


How do I bring up the window where you type in the password to get on a wireless network? I'm using Mint 12. My computer sees the wireless network I just need to log in/on.

To my knowledge, you are using NetworkManager; How exactly are you seeing the network? When you click on the NetworkManager icon, just select the access point, and it should ask for your password. Are you by chance using a different wireless manager?
