Dear Andy:

I found the wifi driver has a problem.
When I use "iwlist scan", it has the following result.

/ $ iwconfig
lo        no wireless extensions.

usb0      no wireless extensions.

[  226.590000] HTCSendPktCompletionHandler: request failed (status:-1, 
eth0      AR6000 802.11g  Mode:Managed  Bit Rate=65.535 Mb/s

          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

/ $ iwlist scan    
lo        Interface doesn't support scanning.

usb0      Interface doesn't support scanning.

eth0      Failed to read scan data : Resource temporarily unavailable

So the wifi driver is no OK.

Best Regards,
