  Mint (older version)
  Doesn't work as expected
What works:

Can see networks that are in range.

What doesn't work:

Hangs when attempting to connect to a network.

Additional notes:

Default drivers in Mint do not work. The partial function achieved was using ndiswrapper. Even to get that working required downloading and installing package ndiswrapper-dkms and manually loading ndiswrapper module.
