Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I had checked it, the wpa_supplicant was really killed.
I could use iwconfig to set the wireless device, but the wireless
device did not react what I set. For example, I set the ESSID of
another AP, then the ESSID showed in iwconfig is as I set, but the
wireless device did not connect to the AP as I set.
