I'm currently using a Dell Inspiron laptop with a wireless network card. I just burned a Linux Mint live DVD and got it to boot up, but the OS won't see the wireless connection, only the wired one. The apartment I'm using doesn't have any physical network connections, only a wireless network, so this means I can't connect my laptop to the internet at home with Linux Mint. Are there any drivers or anything else I can download to help this problem?
Also, my touchpad has a feature where if you tap it, the system registers a click...and this doesn't work in Linux Mint either. Unlike the wireless connection, this isn't really essential, but I would like to get it to work.
