now it works.
auto and allow-hotplug didn't work on my box.
This is my solution (for all others having the same trouble):
I modified /etc/network/interfaces this way:
iface eth2 inet dhcp
and in /etc/rc.local:
Etch-nb:~# cat /etc/rc.local
# This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
# Make sure that the script will "exit 0" on success or any other
# value on error.
# In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
# By default this script does nothing.
ifup --verbose eth2
This configuration makes the machine connecting to my WLAN at the first try
without any errors. :-)))
Thank you Frank and Freddy!
