Can't connect to internet

Postby bperci » Thu Dec 18, 2008 1:46 pm

I have installed linux mint 5 onto a Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop. It seemed to have loaded alright but I am unable to connect to the internet. The laptop is wireless and the connection is through ATT U-verse. I have no trouble connecting with a windows computer and a MAC that I also own. The icon for mint states that it cannot connect. Any help would be appreciated.
