[ubuntu] no connection to insecure wireless network

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, Ubuntu 10.04: no problems to connect to secured wifi networks. However, when trying to establish a connection to an insecure wifi after some time I get the message "disconnected, you are now offline" without ever having been connected. Once out of about 30 times I get a normal connection. My eeePC 1005HA is double boot and I can connect from WinXP without problems. There seems to be a DHCP timeout (see attached output of syslog). I have seen some posts about the same problem but none of them had a solution. I hate it to use WinXP just for the sake of connecting to the spot. Any s (HowTos)
