So your notebook is able to see the AP?! In case of doubt, try
'$iwlist scan' and ensure that the AP you're trying to connect to is listed.

That's rather strange.. *.252??? You could try and have a look in
/etc/dhcp3/dhclient.conf and/or the man page(s) (man dhclient) whether
you can specify the subnetmask..

But fist, you should try bring up your interface with a static IP first
and see whether you connect fine. From my experience something's wrong
with the connection if you don't get an ip from a dhcp. Do also check
whether the AP is able to see you (check the AP's logs..)

That's maybe cause you don't have an ip yet..?!
