    Mint linux wireless problems

    I have a new install of Mint and I set up wireless and it worked fine.
    But now it doesn't come on automatically or at all.
    Any ideas?

    Code:
    cat /etc/network/interfaces
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    Code:
    ifconfig -a
    eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:1d:09:93:d2:39  
              UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

    It would depend on the network card you used, I believe the Realtek cards have good support within most Linux distributions. I have used these for sometime and not had any issues.

    Hello Davholla,

    I found the below URL that may be of a help to you:
    http://www.cyberciti.biz/tips/linux-...pter-list.html

    The site is very useful and has never let me down in the past, this should help you with finding a USB adaptor.
