I ended up using a Panda Wireless USB.

But it disconnects and does not easily reconnect after logging out or switching users.

Might you be able to tell us what drivers the wifi dongle uses? Personally, I haven't been able to use wifi for nearly a month, for something has changed about wifi in recent kernels. Are you able login to previous kernels and test the new dongle?

Here's an older thread involving a Ralink dongle... perhaps you'll just need to adapt the driver name particulars?

I'm sorry. I got lost in all that. My problem seems similar to the other Peppermint user who had his wifi disconnecting.

It doesn't look like he resolved it.
