wireless stop working RP2

Sun Sep 04, 2016 9:53 pm

hello folks
to connect to wifi i use a wireless usb stick, it was perfectly working, sometime ago it doesn't want connect to my ap, the usb stick is well detected by the systeme as wlan0 when i execute sudo iwlist wlan0 scan it displayed the APs around
but when i go to wifi networks (dhcpcdui) it tell me that is no interface available, my /etc/netwok/interface :

Code: Select all

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
iface default inet dhcp
thank you for your reply

If you type "ifconfig -a" would you see perhaps an interface named differently, like wlan1?
If you don't see any wireless interface listed by ifconfig, either your dongle is dead, or somehow the OS can't manage to load the required modules to make it work.
