Re: wlan0 not recognize

Your wireless isn't called 'wlan0'.Mine is 'wlp4s0'.Check the name and then run 'wifi-menu name'.

Look at the output of ip link to find the name of your interfaces.

Re: wlan0 not recognize'_Guide#Wireless

Just follow the wiki.
Do iwconfig, it will display the interface name.
ip link set wlp3s0 up
wifi-menu wlp3s0

If any errors along the way, you probably need to load a module.  For example, mine is ath9k for my atheros chipset and it is modprobe ath9k
