sees other APs around your house, and wired can only connect sometimes, my guess
is that something is wront with your AP/router.

be any such settings. Please post the output of the following command:
sudo /usr/sbin/iwlist scan | grep ESSID
Is your AP in that list? If so, then post the full output of
OK got new issues now. After I posted the previous reply I was able to successfully connect for a few hours. Then the connection disconnected. Now I am unable to view my router, cant access via LAN cable, phone also doesnt see the connection.
I am unsure whether it is a fault with the router, the ISP or god knows what.
to provide the output of the commands, I need the internet to be working at home. If and when it does work I will go ahead and post the output.
