As I've mentioned before I've run apt-get update && upgrade and my wlan0 isn't working anymore - please help. The details you've may be asking me:

I've already tried to reinstall drivers as a last time - this time it didn't help :(

pi@pi / $ cat /etc/network/interfaces 

auto lo

iface lo inet loopback
iface eth0 inet dhcp

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
iface default inet dhcp

and finally


sudo cat /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf 
ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev

#   ssid="SKYA767C"
#   psk="House!-01"
#   proto=RSN
#   key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
#   group=CCMP TKIP


Please note that above # are as I've try 1st and 2nd configuration and any of them didn't work. What else I need to do?

Can anyone help to fix my wlan0 interface
