This is my first post in any Q&A site
Yesterday I tried to clone my wiress NIC MAC so I edited /etc/network/interfaces. I didn't checked if it worked because I was able to clone my MAC through the GUI. The next time I booted my machine I tried to connect to a Wireless network, but when I checked the list of available networks I didn't see one, while there are. I undo the changes to the file and rebooted my computer, still I'm not able to see any.
I am using Debian 8 with Gnome 3.
This is the content of my interfaces file:
# The loopback network interface
iface lo inet loopback
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
Here is some information that might be useful:

Any help would be very much appreciated
