[driverloader] A mountain to climb

according to the output of the 'iwconfig' command you have sent us, you 
are not connected to an access point since we do not see the MAC address 
of your wireless card in the output of the previous command, even if you 
set the ESSID parameter.

Could you 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.
