Hi Justin,

in this hotel I see three access points: the only one that answer to wpa_supplicant seems only the my floor's one, while
with iPad I'm able to connect to each of them.

It's strange, I've tried also to set dfbsd laptop MAC address with the same of my iPad but I've not got any new result.

In attachment there is the tcpdump file of the dhclient wlan0 session:
