Internet/network connections..

I have a simple problem.  I have both eth0 and wlan0 set up on my Devuan-ascii system.

Yesterday I unplugged the eth0 connection and eventually the wlan0 port was activated.  I now had wifi connection.

This morning when I turned on the computer with no eth0 cable attached,  the system never found the wifi arrangement.
I now had no internet/wifi connections.

I tried bringing it up by typing  -  ifdown wlan0 and then ifup wlan0.  And got nothing. 
But as soon as I plugged in the ethernet cable it found that and away things went.

What is the way to tell the wifi side to get the wlan0 port going.  Is using ifup wlan0 good enough.
Or is there another process that will work better.  Maybe a better command etc..

Thanks for any input..

Re: Internet/network connections..

Hi

Are you using wicd ?? If so edit /etc/wicd/manager-settings.conf so all your devices are listed there  and then reboot. Otherwise you may need to set things up via wpa_supplicant.

The OP appears to be using ifupdown.

@OP: please post the full content of /etc/network/interfaces (and the content of any files under /etc/network/interfaces.d/, if applicable).

Re: Internet/network connections..

Try ifconfig -a and check maybe the name is not wlan0
And you need to change it .
