Description of problem:
I tried to use my buffalo-tech wifi card (which works fine in other
places) at a t-mobile hotspot in SFO airport.  It seemed to be talking
to the server but didn't accept any of the leases offered.

I will attach stuff from the messages file.

After the first failed attampt, the server wouldn't talk to me at all.
 Perhaps it thought I was just too stupid.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Go to SFO airport
2.Set up wireless card to use DHCP
3.Insert it

Actual Results:  Didn't get a lease, couldn't get online

Expected Results:  Should have gotten online
