Try adding a wpa-driver statement:

iface eth2 inet dhcp
  wpa-driver your-driver
  wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.mynet.conf
  auto eth2

Than debug WPA-SUPPLICANT Client:
	sudo wpa_supplicant -i eth2 -D your-driver
-c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -d

Try also:
	sudo dhclient eth2

Restarting network interface:
	sudo ifdown eth2
	sudo ifup eth2

Post outputs and syslog entries related to the above activities.

the wext driver is taken by default.

Here's the output after manually taking down eth2 (ifdown eth2).

My config is working, but only at the second try at the end of the bootprocess.

Any further ideas?

Thank you.


I had a very similar problem to yours, only my wlan connection would work on the first try about 3 out of ten times. I ended up removing the "allow-hotplug" statement in /etc/network/interfaces for that ethernet device and replaced it with "auto". Now mine works on the first try better than 95% of the time.
It was something to do with udev but I can't recall the specifics right now.
