No DHCP on OPT1 Wifi

I can't get client to associate to my pfSense box with DHCP. It works ok if I set everything up with STATIC IP. Client is Backtrack 5, on compaq/hp netbook.
x enable opt1 interface
type=static (if dhcp then IP never gets set on client, and then no internet connection is made)
x bridge with LAN
x 802.11g only
transmit power 99
channel 11b/g-9 (same situation on -6 channel)
x Enable WEP (or) x Enable WPA (testing with both options either works or or does not work depending on Static/DHCP setting)
x Enable DHCP server on LAN (no specific option for OPT1 interface, but it's bridged)
Same client connected via ethernet to the LAN gets the DHCP and works ok. A problem with bridging?
Any suggestions? It would be best to have DHCP functioning on the wifi so guests only need to know the guest password and not dream up IPs.

If you bridge the interface then you need to allow DHCP traffic.
Create an allow-rule on the WLAN-interface above all other rules with:
Protocol: UDP, Source: 0.0.0.0, source-port:68, destination: 255.255.255.255, destination-port:67
