as long as you are unable to see your access point in the output of the 
'iwlist scanning' command in a root shell, you will not be able to associate 
(connect) with your access point.

Please make sure that your wireless card is activated. It is possible that you 
might have to press a button or look in the BIOS for an option to activate 
the card. You could also try with different versions of the Windows XP driver 
to see if there is a difference.

Make sure that your access point broadcast it's ESSID and make sure that the 
ESSID string is not empty. You should also disable all MAC address filtering 
and make sure that the channel is set between 1 and 11. If your access point 
have a CTS protection mode, please disable it. You should also make sure that 
you use the latest firmware version for your access point.

If you require more assistance, please send at support at linuxant.com the output 
of 'dumpdiag'. Type the following in a root shell:

dldrconfig --dumpdiag

Just send us the generated file located in /tmp ('driverloaderdiag.txt').
It'll help us solve the problem.
