DHCP freezes GNOME


Debian Lenny.
I have the intel wireless type card. Installed the iwlwifi-firmware package.
The school's network is "stunet", no wep key since it asks for student credentials in the browser.

I go to debian's (or gnome's, really) network configuration tool.
Enter in stunet for the ssid, didn't pick encryption. I pick DHCP.
No luck, doesn't connect. Go into "DNS servers" and type in 192.168.0.1 and 192.168.0.0. Nothing.
Recalling the previous commands from another thread
Code:
ifconfig wlan0 up; ifconfig essid "stunet"; dhcpcd wlan0;
It waits a few seconds, then it says "Assigned IP 192.168.34.50 (or something like that)".

I tried going back into network configuration and entered in the static ip. No luck.

Suggestions? Thanks.

Try
Code:
iwconfig eth-dev-number essid any
and connect using network manager.

Do you have all wireless tools installed and updated?
