wireless internet Noob tip

Postby F_disk on Fri Jan 09, 2009 3:18 pm

Hi peeps...

Yep i'm a noob at Mint...so here goes...
I did a fresh install of Mint..and guess what...no internet...
After banging my head on the desk, trying a ton of different things,
right clicking on the internet icons on the lower right side....
I finally got it to work...how you ask...lol stupid me...

I double clicked the icon in the lower right hand corner...no not right click
double clicked...low and be hold up popped all of my possible internet
connections...I selected one and BAM.....i was connected...

I'm not saying this has not been figured out before...but, if you can't connect
you may want to try it...worked for me...

BTW....just doing a direct connect without a router...just a pci card with a
built in anntena...( it's a cheesy trendnet pci card ) ...

Hope this helps some of you .... best of luck...
