Since you originally said the wifi indicator is not illuminated, then it does
not have the correct driver loaded...< lsmod > will verify this..Without 
a correct driver loaded then the Network tool will not see a wifi card,
and iwconfig is futile...Once the correct driver is found and loaded, then
you will be able to configure it.    Lou
