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.

If you have a laptop, 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. It is also possible that 
you will have to press the button in Windows XP and then reboot in Linux 
as some wireless button requires a driver to make it work. Such Linux 
drivers and information on how to use them might be available at :


Please also try with different versions of the Windows XP driver.

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.
