I know that wpa_supplicant doesn't handle DHCP but when I was using it then 
the ifup command would say that it connected, didn't return an error, but DHCP 
would always fail but it never did this before.  Then I switched to mokonnect 
after learning about it and it worked right after install until it got updated 
from the one in the SHR feeds which I'm guessing something broke.
