Nothing in your post has anything to do with the wireless hardware, so it is impossible to say with the given information.

Which modules does your hardware use? Are you able to do a simple scan of nearby APs with a command like "iwlist wlan0 scan", replacing "wlan0" with whatever your WiFi interface is.
