That is definiately the reason, .. the main question I had is why can an
Apple system connect right away, while a standard Linux stack (SuSE 13.1)
never receives an IP.
The test situation was after a session disbanded, and there were less than
10 folks in the room with open laptops - I asked the chap sitting nearby
if he had been getting a connection, so he opened his MacBook (or whatever
model) and logged right in, all the while I could not get an IP.
