I installed this on Sunday and it worked srtraight away....and now it won't connect...same thing happened with Mint 11...after using Mint 10..it worked all the time on Mint 10.
I have three other computers all working ( not at same time) with wireless...so its not my ISP...
My Linux knowledge is very very basic...I really like Ubuntu ..so I hope I can resolve this issue..
Thanks for any replies and help...

If you right-click the internet icon in the upper right, is "enable networking" checked?

I think you should be already connected according to your ifconfig ..... could you ping any sites and check if you are already connected

$ ping google.com

if you cant ping the site the plz run the above command and post the output

$ rfkill list

Maybe there are problems with configurations in your router ????? Have you checked that out ?????
