    So you have a wireless router which is distributing the 'net to the HP wirelessly? The mini is connecting to the network but will go no further (will not connect to the internet)?

    In the System Preferences, under the Network settings, have you tried pressing the Assist Me button down the bottom left? It will give you two options from memory. Firstly, it will ask if you want to run a diagnostic test which will help determine which part of your network is lagging/faulty. The second option (and the default one) is the Assistant which will hopefully help you get set up on this network. I recommend running this Assistant, it is very helpful in most circumstances. :)
