I seems as though you have the WiFi working, except it won't connect to
other networks.
Q: Are the other networks secure?
Q: Do you have a personal WiFi router that you want to connect to?
Q: Are you using Network Manager?
Q: When you attempt connection, what is the error message if any?
Q: Do you know your MAC address?
Setting up a wireless router involves many settings. I opted to block
transmission of the ESSID after connecting the first time. I use MAC
address blocking and WPA2 security.  But that is only on the personal
wireless router.  Open WiFi routers do not need any of that.
Let me know!
