    With Mint Julia, I had issues connecting to WiFi. Apparently, I had to install the WiFi driver using a wired connection before I could use WiFi. I'm not sure if this is the case with yours but if it helps, then great.

    Good Luck!

    Yes it will work
    Xubuntu is Ubuntu but it uses a lighter desktop called XFCE
    http://xubuntu.org/

    I also use a Ubuntu derivative call Mint, the MATE desktop version works very well.

    Have you booted a live USB of Xubuntu? or any Linux distro? Did your wireless not work?

    I have no idea what wireless device you have
