Did you get it all work out? Or did you install different distro?

Sorry it took a while but I finally found the HDD that have Linux for my laptop. Here is my "/etc/network/interfaces" file.

Code:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface wlan0 inet static
wireless-essid compunuts
address 192.168.90.3
netmask 255.255.255.0
gateway 192.168.90.1

auto wlan0
And here is my scan result with iwlist.

Code:
compunuts@tecra:~$ iwlist wlan0 scan
wlan0     Scan completed :
