I have a new Thinkpad Ultra-thin Laptop, and the Wireless problem does not seem to be with LinuxMint, Ubuntu or Network-Manager
Apparently, the Levono Wireless Drivers used does not comply
with the Debian Software Policy/Contract.
All OS-distro I've tried that are Debian-based do not show wireless ... other non-Debian distros work 'outta da box'
There is a set of non-free
Wireless drivers needed, that you can install.http://wiki.debian.org/rtl819xhttps://launchpad.net/~lexical/+archive ... ld/1854980http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Dow ... eding_edgehttps://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WiFiHowTo
