I am a newbie to linux, have been running with mint for the past 2 months .. my first time out of the windows environment. I changed my ISP 2 days ago, new router etc ... no problems with the new connection to my notebook as I always have been running wireless. This morning when I went to check the notebook it showed my network was disconnected, no wireless connection and it wouldnt connect. All my other devices on the network have no problem with the wireless connection (ie xbox, wife's notebook running windows etc)
For some reason I cannot locate my router and the wireless connection .. its as if the device has been disabled .. when I connect the notebook with a lan cable there is no problem with a connection .. its just wireless which has disappeared.
How can I fix this please ?
