Or just tell him to get one of these:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Edimax-EW-7811UN-150Mbps-Wireless-Adapter/dp/B003MTTJOY

They're tiny, so won't get caught on anything .. and they work out ofthe box with Peppermint 5 / Ubuntu 14.04 / Mint 17 / etc.

 He has been running this with a wi-fi dongle for last few days.

 No problem at all.

 He can get online so happy to leave it at that.

 Thanks again for all your help Mark.

 Jocklad. :) :)
