dhcp connects but cannot resolve names

Hi friends,
i get a wifi dhcp connection at home, but cannot resolve names.
I can ping ip addresses around the world, but cannot ping hostnames,
since they are not resolved. I configured with iwconfig, iwpriv
as shown bellow. The first configuration i tried with network manager.
No success, but many people report problems with it anyway.
Take a look at my main steps to connection:

me% iwconfig ath0 essid <server name> key <numbers>
me% iwpriv ath0 authmode 1
me% iwconfig ath0 ap <hardware address>

me% dhclient ath0
There is already a pid file /var/run/dhclient.pid with pid 5104
killed old client process, removed PID file
