I feel that I must be missing something obvious, but I'm having trouble setting up wireless. My atheros based internal wifi card seems to have been detected properly. Unfortunately I can not connect to a hidden WPA2 network.
Is there an online help page or forum topic on wireless networking options?

You have a wiki herehttp://www.linuxmint.com/wiki/index.php/MintWifi
If you control the AP set it to "Visible" you only get problems when hidden - no security boost at all
You might unhide and make your first connection and then hide again I think it will work but not sure
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
