2 seconds to assoc, 20 seconds to wait for the retarded dhcpcd "I got a 
dhcp response but let's broadcast to see if this ip is really free.".
Dhclient used to be better, but now it has the same broken idea.
Android is much faster, because like windows,  it backgrounds the stuff 
while already letting you use the network. I don't see why you'd want 
anything else.
