Try the following: Checkbox all user rights in USERS&GROUPS and login again. After that remove your wireless profile and create a new one in "Infrastructure" mode. Which encryption do you use? I recommend WPA2-AES (CCMP) if possible.

The wireless router doesn't seem to be the problem though... Changing the network configurations for a network my laptop doesn't even detect doesn't make much sense... I tried even manually entering the ssid and mac address on an open network to no avail.

Try "the other" driver:


sudo modprobe -rfv rt3090sta
sudo modprobe -v rt2860sta
sudo depmod -a
sudo service network-manager restart
Changing to WPA2 because the networkmanager often has problems with mixed encryption. Any buttons/switches/keys/key combinations? Checked the BIOS settings?
