Re: dhcp client wifi setup

I am obviously missing the obvious here.  An IBM Thinkpad, sid, orinoco
wifi card talks to the Netgear DG834G router when security is disabled,

   iface eth0 inet dhcp

But ifup eth0 gives

   etho: New link status: Connected (0001)

   ...more similar...
   No DHCPOFFERS received.
   No working leases in persistent database.


   Failed to bring up eth0.

Which tells me I left something out.  But what?

Help me someone?
You can also look in /etc/network/interfaces if you have the setup for your wlan. Edit it as per the goob man page.
Good luck
