IPW2200 works but I can't get a dhcp-offer

I recently upgraded my whole system using pacman and the testing-repo, switched to a 2.6.13-kernel (I used ABS and configured one using mostly the archck-stuff), solved some weird udev-issues (using the "usb-handoff" option) and thought that everything is fine. I could even get fglrx to work.
As my next step I decided to compile ieee80211 and the IPW2200-driver.
Everything works perfectly now, iwconfig says:

lo        no wireless extensions.

sit0      no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

Warning: Driver for device eth1 has been compiled with version 18
of Wireless Extension, while this program supports up to version 17.
Some things may be broken...

eth1      IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:"home" 
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz  Access Point: 00:C0:49:5A:B9:7E   
          Bit Rate=54 Mb/s   Tx-Power=20 dBm   
          Retry limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality=100/100  Signal level=-18 dBm  Noise level=-86 dBm
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:3   Missed beacon:0

It even detects my AP!
But when I try to get an IP from my router, dhcpcd and dhcpclient fail.

Some Ideas?

You could first try to connect without DHCP and see what happens. You might also want to use ABS and compile the latest wireless_tools package.
