Description of problem:
Tried to get a lease over wifi (3com) from a nt4 dhcp server.
Dhclient fails to do this, but pump suceeds.
I'll attach scraps from the messages file to show this.
The card does work with a static address.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Try to bring up wifi card with dhcp
Created attachment 97214 [details]
Shows dhclient failing to get a lease from a nt4 dhcp server
Created attachment 97215 [details]
Shows pump getting a lease from same nt4 server
The only reason dhclient declines a valid offer is if the
dhclient-script detects by ping that the assigned address
is already in use - not a bad idea.
Not reproducible when address not in use.
