Do you mean it never succesfully associates?

Does:

Code:
iwlist wlan0 scan


Provide a list of the networks you want to connect to?

Hi, maybe you should try wpa_supplicant and use a pretty small /etc/conf.d/net :

Code:

#WPA_SUPPLICANT

modules=( "wpa_supplicant" )
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-Dwext"
config_wlan0=( "dhcp" )

If I disable ifplugd (by adding"!plug" to my modules) I can start and use the wireless no problem.
