Angry install Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 802.11 b/g/n drivers on hp pavlion dv7 laptop

i have an hp pavilion dv7 laptop and i installed openmandrivalx 14.1 x64 on it and cannot configure the wireless intel centrino wireless n-2230 adapter. Have downloaded the iwlwifi drivers but cannot install because the system cannot resolve the $MIRRORLIST problem.
This occurs on all mandriva based linux systems i hahe tried mageia with the same result. Mageia cannot even recognise the centrino adapter.
Ubuntu based linux systems install on the fly.
What good is an operating system in the modern era that you cannot connect to the internet seamlessly?

Hi and welcome to LQ. Your problem seems to be about installing packages rather than a problem with your wifi adapter. If you can't install the driver then it's not surprising that your wifi won't work. I have no idea what "the $MIRRORLIST problem" is but it might be worth talking about that and solving it. Then you could install your drivers and you would have a working system.
