Which DHCP server are you using? How is it configured? Is the AP using
bridging between wlan0 and eth0 or are you using IP routing? Can you see
te DHCP request from the client on the AP with a sniffer (e.g., tcpdump
on wlan0)? What about reply form the DHCP server? Does the DHCP server
log the request in syslog/debug log?

Maybe not that surprising, but I feel it's got more to do with the DHCP
server configuration than Host AP driver.. ;-)
