iwconfig is for WEP If that's what you need:

iwconfig wlan0 essid xxxx channel xx key xxxxxxxxx 
dhcpcd -t 5 -d wlan0


dhclient wlan0

But I'm sure you'd like to use the wpa supplicant.

Look here https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WPAHowTo

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.
