I successfully installed the 8/16 snapshot at the office (which uses a

However, at home (using a Linksys router as the DHCP server), dhclient

Maybe you should try a workaround, like manual setup of the ip address and
ifconfig wi0 192.168.1.x netmask 255.255.255.0
route add default 192.168.1.1
Should work, maybe there is something blocking the dhcpoffer packets from
your router, or maybe since it works in openbsd 3.7, the one that you
downloaded and comes with dhclient is probably buggy.
There's nothing suspicious in /etc/dhclient.conf or
/var/db/dhclient.leases.wi0. I'm at a loss as to how to help debug this.
