I am trying to try out Linux Mint 14. However, I am having difficulty getting wifi on my desktop. I can not connect to the internet via LAN port due to the location of my router. Any way I have tried some online forums to get some help with no luck. I installed the win xp driver via ndiswrapper and it still is not communicating with Linux Mint. Any ideas or tutorials on how to get them to communicate?



P.S. Any code that you need I will post. (I am working on my laptop to get this to work)

Doesn't look linke Ndiswrapper says that it works with it, unfortunately Cisco doesn't really care about Linux support for their chipsets. Refer to this very recent question on Ask Ubuntu (Since Linux Mint is a derivative of Ubuntu, it is still valid). – nerdwaller Jan 28 '13 at 23:58
Note that the second answer on the thread @nerdwaller refers to suggests that they were able to get it to work using a different driver – ernie Jan 29 '13 at 0:13
