We need more information; how does it fail? Post 'ifconfig -a', a
relevant dmesg excerpt, the result of 'ifup ath0' or whatever command
you're using to bring the interface up, a relevant syslog excerpt, etc.

(with puppy on a pendrive my connection wifi works fine on the same box)

Try stopping the avahi-daemon; it can apparently muck things up. What
does 'iwconfig ath0' give?

Try stopping the avahi-daemon; it can apparently muck things up.

same result.


What does 'iwconfig ath0' give?

Ok, so the card is apparently not associated with the AP. What does
'iwlist ath0 scan' give? Does 'ifconfig ath0 up' followed by 'iwconfig
ath0 essid nnnnnnnn' accomplish anything?

Ok, so the card is apparently not associated with the AP.
You got me a good clue : I saw that Access Point: Not-Associated
and I did :sudo ifconfig ath0 to get my HWaddr

after that I did: sudo iwconfig ath0 ap xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
+ sudo dhclient ath0 and now the wifi works fine :-)

I don't understand truly why I lost my connection wifi.
Perhaps it happened when I changed my key WPA:
I changed it in /etc/network/interfaces but I forgot to change it
in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf


What does 'iwlist ath0 scan' give? Does 'ifconfig ath0 up' followed by 'iwconfig
ath0 essid nnnnnnnn' accomplish anything?


Many thanks for your help and sorry for the trouble.
