I'm using the new distribution Linux Deepin based on Ubuntu after having used Ubuntu for the last two years.

After I'm connected to my wireless network, I can't find any other networks scanning for new ones. In other Linux distributions or Windows though, networks will be found.

It seems like a problem with network-manager. I installed "Wifi Radar" but that didn't help.
