udhcpc appears to be the most fragile part in the process
    it either connects, now with the constant error message, see attached

Not sure about error msg, looks perfect to me...

I guess the next step could be to try something slightly different - for example:
Code: [Select]
sudo iwconfig eth1 essid "ssid"
sudo iwconfig eth1 key restricted 7D:3A:7C:72:F7:9A:6F:91:DF:CF:C9:AD:CE [replace with your wep key]
sudo udhcpc -b -i eth1 -x hostname:box -p /var/run/udhcpc.eth1.pid

results: no lease, forking to background

In fact many wifi cards use eth1 - it's worth entering "ps aux | grep udhcpc" to check if udhcpc is trying to connect a wired ethernet adapter eth0, I've found this sometime seems to prevent wifi from connecting

Might be a good idea to use boot code "nodhcp" when planning to use wireless net.

will add it to extlinux.conf and give it a try

at this point, getting confused, it is (1) my laptop, (2) tcp or (3) something else?
