I have an ethernet connection working all right, but would love to have an applet like Apple has that detects your Wifi gateway offerings and lets you select one and secure it by entering your password. Until then, what do I need to set up this baby?

Thanks, almost there.

I installed the software successfully and it offered my Xfinity gateway Wifi wireless network selections within my apartment building, including mine.
However, when I select it, it shows 100% connection strength and it will not connect on the Linux Mint network settings panel.
What else am I missing???

Here's a picture...I'm KrisWifi and can't connect to it.

You might have to disconnect the ethernet cable to connect with wifi

LOL. In order to post this message, I had to plug in my ethernet cable.

I took that picture to show that my laptop does detect the Wifi network connection, but when I click on it to use it, my laptop does not connect to it.
Note: no Wifi connection to KrisWifi.

That's why I have to wonder, is this set up for the right device driver, or are there some other details that I need to enter, besides my password to use my Wifi router?

This here below is when the Ethernet cable is connected:

I did a system update and installed the kernel update. Took a break and did a complete laptop shutdown.

Later did a hard reboot without the ethernet cable plugged in. Logged in and selected my personal Wifi router connection and got connected!
Woohoohoo!

Thank you so much for your help on telling me what pieces of software to install to get the Wifi applet installed! :D

All is well with my wireless connection!
