MBA not detecting wifi devices

Hello everyone,

I've got a MBA running Lion (10.7.5) and thus far has been working well. However, all of the sudden it no longer recognizes wifi devices. I have a printer and a NAS and neither seem to be usable or even show up on this computer. They are fine with my other macs, so what's up with this one? Has anyone heard of this before? I tried to do some google and forum searches but didn't turn up anything that worked. So far I've "zapped the PRAM", done a disk permissions fix, and reinstalled Lion, nothing helped.

Thank you for your advice
