Actually the DHCP client will try to connect every minute until it
get's an answer from DHCP server, not just once.

Most probably there is something wrong with the WLAN connection. Try
assigning manual IPs and ping something from local network. If it
fails, the WLAN connection doesn't work. If manual IPs work, there is
a problem with DHCP. I suspect it's the former.
