Hello Roberto,

Thanks for the response.
I have nothing of LDAP authentication, Kerberos, Samba, NFS, etc.

I'm using my laptop only at home with the box of my ISP.
I changed nothing with the box for years. 
When I fresh installed Debian Stretch, the only thing I did was choosing the wifi of my box with gnome interface and entering the password for it.
Hence I assume it is using DHCP.
I have no override configuration or anything complicated.

Basically, I just use Firefox with my laptop. Sometimes I code C or PHP stuff or compile latex file but that's it.
I will take my laptop at work, tomorrow, and try to connect to the wifi network there if you think it might help finding the cause.

Thanks, best regards,
   Laurent
