Question [wireless] iwlist only show one network

I just installed Slackware for the first time and im realling liking it but for some unkwnow reason I can only see on wifi network, for a brief time iwlist showed the other networks but then it started showing only one again. The other router, which is not showing, is about 10 meters from me.

this is the output of iwlist wlan0 scan

it seems that it was a problem with the ath9k driver, compiled the most recent version and it work flawlessly now.
