as long as you do not see an access point in the output of the 'iwlist 
scanning' command in a root shell, you will be unable to connect to an 
access point.

It is possible, as you suggested, that the wireless card is not powered 
up. If you have a physical button on your laptop required to activate 
the wireless card in Windows XP, please press it. If it doesn't work, it 
is possible that you will have to boot in Windows XP, press the button 
there and then reboot (not a cold boot!) in Linux.

It is also possible that the problem is related to an IRQ routing 
problem in your kernel. You could try to enable/disable ACPI and/or APIC 
with appropriate kernel boot parameters to see if there is a difference.

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.
