wifi joins but can't DHCP

Wifi configuration appears to semi-successfully negotiate with router, but then can't get DHCP addresses. Manual addresses don't help (static in Network Preferences, or manually via "route add"), so I suppose the problem is deeper, but DHCP is the first thing that clearly fails.
Platform is ASUS Eee PC 1000HE --- device Network controller [2|80|0]
vendor 1814: Ralink corp. device 0781: RT2790 Wireless 802.11n 1T/2R PCIe
Router is Buffalo Airstation Turbo G High Power. I notice that conversation ends with something about media change involving speed. Network Preferences shows speed at 100 Mb/s. Can't see what the MacOS X hosts set their speed to, with this router.
