how to connect adb to a target that uses DHCP to get IP addr

 I'm debugging on an OMAP target running android.  The target has
network connectivity via a usb-to-eth dongle and gets its IP address
via DHCP.  Normally, if I knew the IP addr of the target, I'd set
ADBHOST=<ip_addr> and then start adb - and all works well.  So in the
scenario where I don't know the IP addr that was assigned to the
target by the DHCP server, how can I start adb?  Can ADBHOST be set to
a network, like 192.168.1.* ?

1. Android on device GPS locate not working - code included

I'm creating a project that allows for my location to be found using
the android device and communicating with my website as to where my
Android device is.  When I download the .apk to my phone the following
permissions are acquired:

Network communication (full)
Your location (fine (GPS), coarse (network-based) location)

As of now, on the emulator everything works fine and I can find my
location (default location on Google Maps), but on the phone the
application/device can't find location of the android phone.

please help!...below is the code I'm using for the GPS section.

2. Thread Question

I have a function that utilizes a thread.

A variable the is needed for the program is populated after the thread
call is made.

The thread takes a while to complete.

How can I make the program wait for a thread to complete before moving
