Wireless Network problem
I just installed Linux Mint 9 on my HP Laptop and everything installed fine and it looks great but I cant seem to connect to any wireless networks. The wireless network in my house doesn't even show up like it does in Vista. I looked around the internet for help but I cant seem to figure out how to fix the problem. I found this site
But I dont know how to open up a terminal. Can anyone help me connect to the internet using Linux Mint 9? Again, I'm a new user so a little detail would help greatly.
