So configuring the network during the initial installation (before the 
reboot) went without problems?

Something must be going wrong during the boot sequence.
Some questions/suggestions:
- Is the driver module that is needed for the network card loaded after
  you boot, but before you run dhclient?
- Does the network connection work correctly if you do (as root):
  - /etc/init.d/networking stop
  - /etc/init.d/networking start
- What are the contents of /etc/network/interfaces?

Have you looked at the output of dmesg and the contents 
of /var/log/kern.log and /var/log/syslog for any clues what may be going
