Well, I installed wireless tools package and tried to use it:

ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 enc MY_KEY mode managed essid MY_ESSID channel 6

But I didn't see that IP address was assigned to wlan0 interface. Moreover,
I add into /etc/network/interfaces following:
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid MY_ESSID
wireless-key MY_KEY
wireless-mode managed
wireless-channel 6

and run
ifconfig wlan0 up

But also without luck.

Any ideas why?

This will set it up.
