ifconfig_wlan0="WPA DHCP"

when I booted up I could see from the wireless "beacon" indicator that 
something was happening.  But I kept getting this message:

iwi0: need multicast update callback

And when I tried to do a ping I got the cannot resolve Host name lookup failure...and then all of sudden it started 
working and I was able to successfully ping, and connect.  Is this 
voodoo :-) ?
