OK, let's try the wl driver .. fire up synaptic package manager, and go to

Settings > Repositories > Other software tab

Click the "Close" button .. and close synaptic.

Open a terminal and run:
sudo apt-get update
then
sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic build-essential dkms
then
sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source

sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb wl

I think a later kernel got installed .. try rebooting, then (if wireless doesn't just automatically start working) running:
sudo modprobe -r b43 ssb wl
then
sudo modprobe wl

Ahh .. I see the problem .. run:
sudo apt-get update
then
sudo apt-get upgrade
then
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
then reboot, and come back here for further instructions .. when you've rebooted, post the output from:

Hi there! I know this is a very old post, but I got here from google, searching how to solve a wifi problem on a Dell Mini I use to work with sometimes and has Peppermint 5 OS on it. 
Just stopped by to say thanks a lot for the post , helped  me to solve out this nasty problem.
Thanks !!
