as long as you are unable to see an access point in the output of the 
'iwlist scan' command, 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. 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 :


It is possible that using the Windows XP driver for another wireless 
device is the source of them problem, even if both drivers are for the 
same chipset. In the Acer driver, if you have any CAB files, it is quite 
possible that the missing files are in these archives. You can generally 
extract the files under Linux by using of these programs:

cabextract: http://www.kyz.uklinux.net/cabextract.php
unshield: http://synce.sourceforge.net/synce/unshield.php

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.
