Question Cant connect to WPA2 encryption | IOCSIWENCODEEXT - invalid argument


Hello.

I try to start WPA2 encrypted network connection at wlan architecture by:
Code:
sudo wpa_supplicant -B -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dwext && sudo dhclient wlan0
Then i got response like:
Code:
Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant
iocnt1[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
iocnt1[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
I configured the wpa_supplicant.conf to this basic setup:

Code:
network={
        ssid="my_network"
        psk="my_key"
}
One reason of this problem i may suspect is the error i got while installing libdbus-1-3_1.10.6-1_amd64.deb. I needed to force the dpkg installation with -D argument. After that i got communicate that bus been disconfigured. I trust its my previous version of libbus but i don't really know .

I'm using Debian Jessie and 3.16.0-4-amd64 kernel.
