router access point AP not associated


I can not connect to internet by wireless router after some months with ubuntu 10.04. I can connect with the same portable but with win OS.

My SO is ubuntu 10.04 linux 2.6.32-41 arch SMP i686. The internet wireless network controller is Atheros AR9285 chipset (pci express) Kernel module ath9k

I have tried a command line connection:

$ sudo /etc/init.d/network-manager stop #stop gui network manager
$ iwconfig wlan0 essid WLAN_3C key s:C001D20550B3C
$ ifconfig



... AP 00:1a:2b:08:60:49 associated

Is the SO has connected to router for booting long ( associated message), after boot and login why the connection to router is not possible by network-manager or command line (NOT associated message)?

There is some sequence instruction manual for test the wireless installation ? p.e. like
BIOS wireless info
card wireless info
switch/hot keys
kernel driver info
user interfaces wireless setting
configuration files
router-pc connection
internet dhcp ip

Thanks in advance
