Are you sure then your dhcp client is succeeding?  i.e., is it crashing 

 From the command line try killing any existing dhcp client, and then 
running it again from the command line.  Should give you something more 
of a clue I'd think.  It'd be surprising to me if the dhcp client were 
successful and yet still not populate your resolve.conf.
