I don't think that’s an option. It's a declaration whether or not the
internet connection is available. You might get somebody to download the

You can also get with the Mint user forum. Click on the Mint Forum
button at the left top corner the Firefox Browser once you get a
connection or some other computer. Sometimes the Ubuntu forum answer
questions Mint can't.
