List of wireless networks don't show

Bug Description

I have a HP Pavilion dv1000 and when I am in a place that I usually used a wireless network and I open the network manager, it doesn't show the list of networks available. I have to use iwlist eth1 scanning to copy the name of the network I want to use, and this happen to me and many of my friends who also have Ubuntu Edgy Eft in their laptops

Could you please attach an example screenshot?

I installed Edgy on both mine and my wife's laptop. Both have a broadcom chipset, and we're using ndiswrapper. Here is a screenshot of my network manager, and my wife's looks identical. Clicking the down arrow produces nothing. Like the original poster, iwlist scan is necessary for finding available networks.

This is not a bug in NetworkManager. Reassigning.
