Yeppoon, QLD, Australia.
historically I used to give various Linux distros a run every year or so.
they all had printer and wireless hardware setup issues - enough that I gave up for ages on Linux.
a couple of years ago I tried ElementryOS and loved it, it got all the hardware drivers right from the get-go.
can't vouche for Mint but I would have thought from that last distro I tried that Linux finally got their shite together - but maybe not so.

as I had to do previously, search the crap out of Google for the latest wifi adapter driver for your model (if there is one).
back in my early Linux days I had to use a USB wifi adapter or just go ethernet to get over that hurdle.

Sorry but have to ask, if the wifi works in Windows 10 but not Linux why post on the Windows 10 forum.

If your wifi works in Windows 10 but not Linux this thread is on the wrong forum.

Thread moved to appropriate OS sub forum.
