Yes, it appears to pick it up on the second try as shown in the
original post

Yes by manually editing the "/etc/network/ interfaces" file

I don't have access to the wireless service at the moment and won't
again probably till Monday June 11.

But it appears that the daemon can't find a fie and then tries again
and makes the connection.

It's just that I haven't had this happen previously and just wondered
why it was happening? As you suggest, it might be quite normal. It's a
Toshiba laptop with an Intel wireless adapter that I'm unable to get to
work, so I plug in a wireless dongle that is recognised by the Debian
Wheezy system.

I would have tested it again yesterday, but due to floods couldn't get
back into town where I volunteer at the local community centre. I
connect the lappy into their wireless network.

I just noted that change while connecting on last Monday, and wondered
if it would cause problems in the future.

Thank you for your time in this. But until I can get back into town I
won't be able to see if it's been fixed since the last update.

Thank you.
