iwconfig is for WEP If that's what you need:
iwconfig wlan0 essid xxxx channel xx key xxxxxxxxx
dhcpcd -t 5 -d wlan0
But I'm sure you'd like to use the wpa supplicant.

DHCP is independent of how you connect, wired or wireless.

I'm having problems with recent kernels and my wireless, and I was wondering if I could get some direction in using the command line step by step to configure the wireless with dhcp just so I can rule out gui problems.
