Sorry, you hadn't made it very clear if you were attempting to get a lease from a DHCP server running on a FreeBSD machine or not.
I assumed you were, and had assumed your configuration may have been wrong. However, given your response, I assume you're using an "off the shelf" AP.
There are several things that come to mind as to why you wouldn't get a DHCP lease, like MAC filtering as an example. You'll have to check the logs of the
DHCP server to see if your requests are even making it to the daemon. tcpdump will come in handy if you have shell capabilities on your AP.

As for the proxy, you'll need to look at squid. I've personally never done what you need, but a buddy of mine has using squid. I can't give you any further
details as the configuration/administrator of squid I know nothing about. I do know though that it has the capabilities you seek.
