hi olimex,
i have the basic 2gb debian with xfce4 in my 16gb sd card.
i followed the instruction to set wifi but my wifi does not work.
i edited the file interfaces with foll. command,

vi /etc/network/interfaces
and changed the ssid and wpa -psk and save the file  , and rebooted the sd card.
but my wifi still does not connected.
i have wpasupplicant already installed in the image.

i have wlan6 for wifi & in my interfaces file ,

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

#auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp

#auto wlan6
iface wlan6 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid General Meditech Devices Pvt Ltd
wpa-psk 2244ff789

#     wpa-driver wext
#     wpa-ssid General Meditech Devices Pvt Ltd
#     wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
#     wpa-psk 2244ff789

& then i saved my /etc/network/interfaces file & rebooted the sd card.

then i run the foll command ,
ifconfig -a

but still i get this ,
wlan6   Link encap:Ethernet HWadrr 48:02:2a:c5:f0:bd

if the ssid or password has spaces, then you should use quotes.
Google could help.
