Great thanks a lot, I didn't restart the system but starting the service
I get a "nl80211 not found" error.

Did you also get the password error or just losing the connection?

By the way I would really like to understand why eth0 and eth1 are often

One boot I even saw finally wlan0 as wireless interface device name, is
there a way to fix them forever?
