Although the Lenove is a 64bit system I selected 32bit on the principal that as in the other place 64bit will run both .

You said everything was working before under Ubuntu, so there shouldn't be a hardware problem. Mint contains the application and you loaded the driver. The only other thing that comes to mind is that there may be a group associated with wifi that you need to make yourself a member of. If you need Mint-specific information, you might want to ask on the Mint forum (highest concentration of Mint experts).
