G'day Tony,
   I have one of these horrible HP Stream netbooks running Peppermint 
Linux.   Since there is no ethernet, WiFi is needed for networking.

FWIW.  lspci  shows
  01.00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 3160 (rev 83)

 and lsmod shows 
	is the module responsible.

   If your chosen distribution does not include the hp_wireless module 
by default, then you may have to do some work to get it installed.
