    As far as I know the answer is yes. However, you can naturally write a simple bash script to speed up the process. Also, in case you don't mind the often unreliable connection and other bugs that comes with the program you can use Wireless Assistant to connect to your AP.

    Instead of dhcpcd <interface>, try dhclient <interface>.
