Can't connect unsecured wifi from Wicd or terminal

view story

http://unix.stackexchange.com – I can connect without issue to WPA networks, but if I am somewhere like a hotel and try to connect to an unsecured WiFi, things hang at the DHCP part and I don't get an IP assigned. I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 and my Wifi is on eth1 Wicd, hangs at the getting IP address part. I've tried also (as root) ifconfig eth0 down ifconfig eth1 down dhclient -r eth1 iwconfig eth1 essid AP_Name ifconfig eth1 up dhclient eth1 this just hangs at the dhclient eth1 request until I Ctrl+C it.
