Recheck that the interface is up (ifconfig wlan0 up) and rerun iwlist. If that
doesn't work, I don't know how to address the problem.
When I first got a wireless card, I researched the drivers and opted for a
madwifi based card (D-Link AirPlus DWL-G650). Other than that, I don't have
experience with connection problems. Hopefully, we can get other advice.
