Sometime there might be some interoperability problems with certain
DHCP servers. My recommendation is to file a bug about this to
Connectivity/Networking and provide information as much as possible.
That way there are better chances to get the bug fixed.

Here are some questions for you:

What is the make and model of your AP? (Please to be precise as
possible.) What are the DHCP settings in AP? Does changing them help?

It would help a lot if you can take wireless or Ethernet dump of the
DHCP packets. For example you can use tcpdump or wireshark. But it
might be tricky if you haven't done this before.

Also check this bug, it might be related:
