Default Linux Mint 13 MATE edition - 07-19-2012, 12:21 AM

I've been running the stock Linux distro on my Dell Inspiron Mini 10v since I bought it. Well that's getting kind of old and since it isn't supported any longer, I figure it's time to install a new distro. I decided to give Linux Mint 13 a try. I booted it up on a 4 gig USB stick. It seemed to work pretty well. The screen sized fine and all applications I tried worked well.

However, the wireless isn't working. When I click on the network icon, it says firmware is missing. I know that wireless was one of the problems with older distros, but I figured that this would be supported out of the box.

So has anyone worked through getting their wireless working with Linux Mint 13 and a Dell Inspiron Mini 10?
