The problem with your bug report is, that it does not contain any
actionable information. It says "it doesn't work", but doesn't say what
the circumstances are, what "work" would look like, what exactly you are
doing etc.

Some informations that would be useful:

- what does "the wireless interface fails" mean? You can't ping an
  IP address? You can't ping your router? If you look at interface
  statistics, then you see they are not changing? The interface is
  physically off? And so on.

- what brand and type is your wifi *exactly*

- how do you "shutdown" and "restart" your wifi interface?

- what do the relevant logs say (kernel log, system log)

And so on.

I think it would be best if you'd contact some Debian support
channel where people can potentially guide you along. I suggest:
