i just loaded mint 6 up on to my computer (dell latitude d620) and my on-board NIC can ping but i can't browse with firefox, or download anything.
also, the drivers for my wireless interface weren't even installed. you can see it through iwconfig, but it comes up as down through ifconfig.
so i typed ifconfig wlan0 up to bring it up but i get an error saying the device isn't there. so because of that i think it's the driver.
im new to linux so i need some help, thanks!
