Linux Mint 12 on HP Pavillion DV7 - Wireless is not working

view full story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I just installed Linux Mint 12 using mint4win just to test it out. I have a problem with my wireless connection. When I start Mint, it sees the network I wish to join, I select it, enter the correct password, and 1 minute later I am being prompted for a password again. During that waiting time, I was not connected at all. It appears if I turn off my Wireless (by tapping on the Wireless LED on the laptop), it wont turn on again either. My Ethernet port is broken as well, so I cannot connect with a cable either. In Windows I can connect fine using Wireless. Is there any drivers required for (HowTos)
