Yes, it is supposed to do that. As tcpdump shows, requests are sent but
no replies are heard. Does anyone know where the Powerbook might store
its DHCP server log files?

Is the Powerbook the one setting up the WLAN network or is there an AP
in between? If the Powerbook created the WLAN, does it run in ad-hoc or
managed ("access point") mode (e.g. the WLAN icon in the 770 is set
according to the WLAN mode)?
