There's not really an indicator telling you that you're connected if you use the "Install Peppermint" GRUB option. You just have to kind of figure that you are. It's the same with Ubuntu and its "official" derivatives as well.

I don't think the button to proceed becomes active until you're connected .. and if the connection fails it tells you.

There's also sometimes a wireless indicator top right of screen .. but this sometimes takes forever to appear.

Yeah, that's what I go by.
