Could be a problem with the dchp server. Have you tested the dhcp server with 
a different client; a different machine?

Could be a problem with the network adapter or the module. Try a different 
adapter in the box?

Try a different kernel?

Try a different dhcp client?

Have you any iptables rules set that could interfere?

Did you check dmesg?

Perhaps try to change the interface's mac address?

This seems fine. Is there anything else in the file that could interfere?
