Thanks for the replies,

I had an awfully busy night and didn't have much time to hack NM but
just wanted to give quick updates on the commands above:

* nm-tool shows no wireless networks
* rfkill shows everything is unblocked
* I can scan wireless networks with iwlist
* This is something relevant I found on messages:

> (wlan0): device state change: unavailable -> disconnected (reason 'supplicant-available')

I am not able to copy the exact outputs right now (they are in the
laptop, without wireless), but that should give us a bit of an idea of
what the situation looks like. I searched around and found some
strikingly similar bugs in Fedora 15[0][1], which uses NM 0.9 so my
issue could be along those lines. I didn't have time to read through
all of them, but I'll try that tomorrow. If needed, I could still post
the output of the commands tomorrow to help debugging

Thanks againf or the help.
