The problem is that I don't see the posible wireless AP to connect to, as the wlan0 device is not up.

The device doesn't have to be up -- there's a difference between "up" and
"exists", and the network can be scanned for SSIDs without the device being
actually up. (That's how it usually works, actually.)

Does the wireless network in question have any non-alphanumeric characters
in its SSID? That's a known problem in NetworkManager.

 Oh, really?

eth0      Interface doesn't support scanning.



What's wrong here then?
