I'm new to Linux so I'm trying out Mint. Currently have Mint MATE 64 bit (installed w/o internet connection) installed on a HP 2000 Notebook with the following specs:
Product #: C2M21UA#ABA
Born date: Nov 23 2012
Bios version: F.62
Processor: AMD E-300 APU w/ Radeon HD Graphics
Processor speed: 1300 MHz
Memory: 4 GB
Problem: Now that it's installed the wireless doesn't automaticly search for profiles. Everything seems to indicate I have to manually enter things, which is more/less beyond my understanding, and I don't have my own personal wifi, I use a open public profile, so I don't know that info.
Before I installed Mint I had installed Ubuntu Studio and the wireless worked. Then I installed elementaryOS and encountered the same wireless problem I have with Mint installed.
I have tried what is asked here: viewtopic.php?f=53&t=1085
but it will not work.
Is my computer's wireless hardware not compatible with Mint?
