No DHCPOFFERS received

My wireless was working great last night, work up this morning and it mysteriously stopped working. The only thing I can think of is I recently installed some updates.

heres what I know
1) Other wireless computers on the network are connect just fine.
2) I see no wireless networks (not even my neighbors)
3) wpa_supplicant is running
4) when running dhclient eth1 I get the following:
dhclient eth1
There is already a pid file /var/run/ with pid 19479
killed old client process, removed PID file

Sending on LPF/eth1/00:13:ce:b7:86:ac
Sending on Socket/fallback
DHCPDISCOVER on eth1 to port 67 interval 7
DHCPDISCOVER on eth1 to port 67 interval 14
DHCPDISCOVER on eth1 to port 67 interval 10
No DHCPOFFERS received.
No working leases in persistent database - sleeping.
Im working on getting the logs from my DHCP server but I doubt thats the problem.

Any thoughts?

thank you,
The GNUbie

As quickly as it stopped this morning, it started back up on its own? I contribute it to solar flares, a full moon, and/or network gnomes.
