Could you tell us the 'Service Tag' number, please? This will help us to specifically identify your computer and let you know if Mint drivers for it are available anywhere.

Most Dell laptops use Broadcom WiFi chip sets. Execute the command line "lspci" and "lsusb", and report the results (output) here. The site www.linuxwireless.org has links and instructions for drivers for just about all supported devices. I have a Dell laptop, and their link to the new Broadcom drivers worked great!
