The Ubuntu hardware tester claims my wireless card (Atheros AR928X) exists, as does lspci
and lshw -c Network
03:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR928X Wireless Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)
However I cannot see my university's wireless networks (which are not hidden)

I've tried the "echo" on/off fix seen here to no avail. What is the last step in getting my wireless card to work? My network manager is WICD, by the way.
