Actually, as I mentioned, but you snipped, if you issue "sudo dhclient"
without the name of an interface it simply fails on one and tries another
- for example, here if I have no cable plugged in, it fails for eth0 then
succeeds for eth1 ( wireless).

Issuing the command as
I gave it above will fail for one, and try the other. A more specific way
is to give the interface name - what your wireless interface is called
depends on your card. 

I  tested this before writing my email :) Works for Me (tm) ;p
