    this happened to me too. i got it to work by going to Preferences (shift-p), arrow right to "External Programs", then choosing options for "DHCP Client" and "Route Table Flushing". for some reason, leaving those at "automatic" caused the problem for me. good luck!

    Is the router doing what it supposed to be doing and dishing out those ip address (DHCP service is enabled). Check router logs. Although its a little advanced, i will monitor the traffic in wireshark and look for the "DORA-Discover, Offer, Request, Acknowledge" process for DHCP to see where it falls short(if it does).
