I changed the Wireless Network Name in my router and the channel from 3 to 13. The Wifi works perfectly since I can connect via my cellphone (using the new name)

In Loki I can't even see my connection, when I could connect without issues when it had its previous name.

I can see lots of other Wifi signals, just not mine (neither the old nor the new one)

How can I fix/debug this?

This is an issue with the wireless driver apparently (How to use Wi-Fi channels above 11?) where higher channels (above 7) are not detected.

Changing the channel to 7 restored the visibility of my router in my laptop.
