No gateway from DHCP when using wireless

I am not getting a default gateway assigned to my wireless connection when I connect. My eth0 connection works for the same DHCP server, as well as my other wireless devices on other machines. The only way I can get my wireless to work is "route add default gw". I need to get the gateway from DHCP since I will use my wireless at mutiple locations. Does anyone know how to fix this? In my /ets/sysconfig/network/dhcp I have the line


so I would assume that the route should be set.

Any thoughts?

System Info:
Distro: Suse 9.2
Wireless Chipset: Broadcom
Wireless Driver: Ndiswrapper 1rc4
Wpa Supplicant: Latest from stable branch.
