More details

Thank you for your interest in Mint
To help you solve your problem we need to know exactly what Mint you use.
By that I mean version (like Celena or Daryna or numerical if you prefer) and edition (main = Gnome, KDE or some of the Community Editions like xfce or fluxbox or the mini edition)
We also need possible error messages, exactly as they appear
We also need information about your hardware. You can obtain that by running
lspci
in a terminal
If it is something connected to USB you run
lsusb
and similarly for other 'buses' like pcmcia....
To copy from a terminal mark (with the mouse) and right click
Then paste into a code box (it does not use as much space then)
Thank you

As I suspected - a bcm43xx wifi
You even found an error message about the missing firmware, well done
Lately I always recommend this guide
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiD ... ca757b2851
Step one not necessary in Mint Works from Cassandra to at least the upcoming Felicia
You find the link in the wifi wiki
