Hello all, greetings from snowy England
I installed Linux Mint 14 Nadia Cinnamon 64-bit on a Dell Inspiron 1545 a few day ago. I connected it via ethernet to my router during installation and also got the wireless working without any problems. My son took the laptop with him to Canada but has been unable to connect to the free wifi that's available at the hostel where he's staying, although the other members of the group had no problems connecting theirs.
I wonder if anyone can shed some light on this? Unfortunately, I can't give any details of the hardware as the laptop is now in Canada and I can only communicate with my son for a few minutes at a time.
