Realtek (Ethernet adapter)
Mint (older version)
Works fine with some minor problems
Wireless card works right out of the box!
What doesn't work:
The connection's a little buggy with the default network manager; it will inexplicably throttle down at times, so that download speed varies between ~10Kb/s (or less!) and ~450Kb/s. [See below for more]
What was done to make it work:
I installed wicd network manager to handle my wireless, and my issues seem to have disappeared.
