When you see nothing, there is a possibility that your wireless driver is
not loaded at all.
You need to do check the output of "lspci" command and first determine your
wifi card.

Then using "lsmod" you need to determine whether the wireless driver is

One more quick fix is, right-click on the "two computers" icon and uncheck
"enable wireless" , wait for a few seconds, and check "enable wireless"
again and you might see the sources.
