Comment(by vendion):

 For me on and open network and setting beside my AP, and wpa_supplicant
 turned off, this is what I get

 iwlist eth0 scan (when it decided to work)
 eth0      Scan completed :
           Cell 01 - Address: 00:1E:C7:F7:37:51
                     Frequency:2.437 GHz (Channel 6)
                     Quality=6/94  Signal level=-89 dBm  Noise level=-95
                     Encryption key:on
           Cell 02 - Address: 00:17:3F:44:89:8C
                     ESSID:"Jimerson Home"
                     Frequency:2.452 GHz (Channel 9)
                     Quality=3/94  Signal level=-92 dBm  Noise level=-95
                     Encryption key:off


 When I tried to connect to one of them iwconfig eth0 essid "Jimerson Home"
 didn't return any output, but iwconfig alone shows this

 eth0      AR6000 802.11g  ESSID:"Jimerson Home"
           Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.452 GHz  Access Point:
           Bit Rate=1 Mb/s   Tx-Power=15 dBm   Sensitivity=0/3
           Encryption key:off
           Power Management:off
           Link Quality:165/94  Signal level:-186 dBm  Noise level:-96 dBm
           Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
           Tx excessive retries:12  Invalid misc:0   Missed beacon:0

 The problem comes in when I try and get everything from dhcp udhcpc just
 gets stuck in an endless loop trying to get an IP.
