It would be preferable to start a new thread to make it easier to
follow both.

Because the link may not come up immediately.  I've noticed that it
can take a few seconds to detect a link on a wired interface and I
suspect it can be longer on wireless.

If you feel up to patching the code, you could try making the
timeout in sbin/dhclient/dhclient.c configurable, rather than fixed
at 10 seconds.

I can't explain why it tries twice.
