Noobie needs wifi on pc
I just got Mint 12 installed on an old computer with a new hard drive that had no operating system on it. What I need now is a way to access the internet via wifi. Is there something that I need to download to do this or if not what are my options? In case you're wondering I am not that knowledgeable about computers so please use layman's terms and try and be patient with me. Let's face it I will probably have a thousand questions about a lot of things.
