Aloha, beginning again

Once again I am trying my hand at Linux. I haven't had a terrible amount of exp however I have used an Ubuntu system before doing basics and just kind of jogging around the interface. My friend and I recently attempted to put Mint on an old but robust laptop of mine, things didn't start out so well and I figure I will give him a break and take a crack at in myself. Thanks for what I know will be a great work around.

Stay open.

Got it! frankbell's post about wireless networking helped a bunch I've gotta give him the credit also had blacklist some extras that were getting in my way. Broadcom was just giving me hell but I'm glad to say that what I have running was supported. I'll be sure to give some kudos
