Karmic wireless problems = Helena wireless problems. Same Ubuntu base, same problems, same solutions.

One major snag though-couldn't get wireless to work.
You didn't try very hard. See below.

The "glitch" with wifi on a Dell Mini 9 with a vanilla Karmic install is extremely well documented. A couple seconds on google, or just a search on the forums here, would have given you this exact fix:
use WIRED internet
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get --reinstall install bcmwl-kernel-source
REBOOT (recommended, but may not be necessary if wireless comes up immediately)
On the original subject of Karmic Koala - I still have some issues getting the wireless to work. It worked beautifully in Jaunty.
It would really help if you provided some details on your hardware, and perhaps consulted Mint's wiki to see what appropriate first steps of troubleshooting you might accomplish. Saying you have "some issues getting wireless to work" is a pretty vague statement that is of no use for anyone who might be willing to help you.
