Thanks very much for taking the trouble to reply.
My wpa_supplicant.conf file is very brief. It reads:
About adding scan_ssid=1, I'm in this embarrassing situation. Today, the damn thing is working again!
I've now had the following experience: two days ago, I set things up and all worked properly;
yesterday, I couldn't get it to work at all; today, I try it and it works again.
What I'll do now is wait until it doesn't work again and then add scan_ssid=1.
If that fixes the problem, great.
If not, I'll post something to the list again.
Thanks again for your help,
