I personally use the following script to connect to WiFi. If you replace
ESSID and PASSWORD it might help you.

killall dhclient
killall wpa_supplicant
om wifi power 0
sleep 1
om wifi power 1
sleep 1
om wifi maxperf wlan 1
sleep 1
/sbin/wpa_supplicant -B -s -P /var/run/wpa_supplicant.wlan.pid -i wlan -D  wext -t -ddd -C /var/run/wpa_supplicant
sleep 4
wpa_cli -p /var/run/wpa_supplicant -i wlan add_network
wpa_cli -p /var/run/wpa_supplicant -i wlan set_network 0 ssid "\"ESSID\""
wpa_cli -p /var/run/wpa_supplicant -i wlan set_network 0 psk "\"PASSWORD\""
wpa_cli -p /var/run/wpa_supplicant -i wlan enable_network 0
sleep 8
dhclient -d wlan
