Running Mint 9 not able to see wlan0
I have done all I know to do (which I'll admit isn't much). Mint 9 came with ndiswrapper already installed so all i had to do was track down the .inf on my windows partition and bam, it was installed and detecting the hardware. Now my problem is when I use ifconfig and iwconfig I only show lo, eth0, and pan0, none of which I seem to be able to configure for wireless access. It seems like when I tried linux the very first time years ago, I was able to get the wireless running once it was showing wlan0. I can not figure, for the life of me, how to get that stupid wlan0 to show up. Linux gods of the internet, please hear my prayers and help me before I start cussing at my computer and threatening to throw it out the window.
