Probably a slip of the keyboard. dhcpcd is a dhcp client daemon and
dhcpd is a dhcp server daemon. Although maybe this is at the root of
the original poster's problems.

FWIW, I've been happily using dhcpc on my laptop Debian system for
both my wireless card and built-in ethernet port.  Once it was setup
I've never had a problem hooking to networks with it.  This through
all my various work environments as well as multiple home connections
(wireless, DSL, etc...).  I did have to play with setting up different
name server resolv files for different enviroments, but generally
that's not required if the dhcp server is setup right.
