I've recently acquired a used Dell Latitude D630 and have put Mint on it. Everything seems to be operational except for the wireless. First, I don't know if the wireless card actually works (Ethernet does) and if it does, Mint is not recognizing it. I haven't figured out how to identify the card in Linux, so I am clueless as to what driver I actually need to download and install. Thanks in advance!

Not sure how this helps me, but I'm sure someone out there knows how to find what I need (and/or much appreciated if you can tell me what part I need to be looking at). Thanks!
