So anyway I have the BCM43227 chipset and I found the solution to be pretty simple once I figured it out. Thanks to https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/Driver/bcm43xx#STA_-_No_Internet_access
If you have the BCM4311, BCM4312, BCM4313, BCM4321, BCM4322, BCM43224, BCM43225, BCM43227 or BCM43228
wireless chipset just install the bcmwl-kernel-source
package from the Ubuntu install CD. After installing Linux Mint, pop in an Ubuntu CD that corresponds to the version of Linux Mint that you installed then navigate to /pool/restricted/b/bcmwl
, doubleclick on that package and install it, then reboot, and wireless should be working.
I tried using a Mint install DVD but could not find the packages so if anyone knows how to do this with a Mint DVD feel free to add to this.
