Did you ever figure this out?

I have a similar wlan0 ifconfig, with link quality: 0/10, but I can ping, etc.

It may be the antenna. I've found that the little connection can sometimes
be flakey.

I think I have a bad module.  I put it right next to the AP and now it
lights
up to indicate a connection but I get this from iwconfig.

wlan0     MRVL-CF8385  ESSID:"BOTUSA"  Nickname:""
         Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.437 GHz  Access Point: 00:18:39:CA:F6:44
         Bit Rate:1 Mb/s   Tx-Power=13 dBm
         Retry limit:8   RTS thr=2347 B   Fragment thr=2346 B
         Encryption key:****-****-**   Security mode:restricted
         Power Management:off
         Link Quality:0/10  Signal level:-35 dBm  Noise level:-98 dBm
         Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:56
         Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

The fact that the ethernet still works makes me think it could just be the
Marvell wifi module.
