Wireless device will no longer connect



I have been using my wireless card for about a year (Linksys WPC54GS) via Ndiswrapper. I first used it with FC6 and now with FC7. I have had no problems with it until last night. I rebooted the computer for the first time in problably a week. I hav egotten a ton of YUM updates so I don't know what affted it but when I try to activate the wireless card (via System > Administration > Network), I get an error message that says:

 "Determining IP information for wlan0...dhclient(1989) is already running - exiting. 
This version of ISC DHCP is based on the release available on ftp.isc.org.  Features have been added and other changes have been made to the base software release in order to make it work better with this distribution.
Please report for this software via the Red Hat Bugzilla site: http://bugzilla.redhat.com exiting. failed."

The following is the output from /var/log/messages as I plug in the card...(does it help debug the problem?):

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!
