if b43 driver doesn't support your hardware why are you trying to use it :-D ?
maybe the right way is using ndiswrapper (like me) ;-)

have you tried to set up essid before doing dchlient?
maybe you don't receive DHCPOFFERS because your hardware doesn't find any net that match with essid off/any ...
so, set your correct essid and then make dhclient...

if you can't solve you problem try to set up all manually with iwconfig, ifconfig and route (check its man's page for all trouble to how use them)...
