first of all big thanks to Brainslayer, his supporters and maintainers!!
I found out that DHCP-Forwarder in v23 sp1 fails when router is in Client-Mode (wireless). In configuration of dhcpfwd you will find two interfaces br0 and vlan1, but in this setup vlan1 is not up and running and dhcpfwd will not work.
After replacing vlan1 with eth1 problem was fixed and my clients could retrieve a ipaddress of our DHCP-server.
Brainslayer: Maybe just a simple exception for client-mode must be added!?
For those whom need a dirty workaround please notify me.

easy. i will not change it
the wan mac is always the mac which is used in client mode since the client wireless device is the wan device in this case. if i change this several radius based wifi installations would get troubles with dd-wrt client mode users
