dhcp client not starting for wireless interface in sta mode

I have a wireless interface called radio0 which is configured in sta mode. When I run "wifi up", the device associates with the access point, but it doesn't start dhcp. I apologize if I've made a configuration error, but I've double-checked everything. My /etc/config/wireless looks like this:

config wifi-device radio0

option type mac80211
option channel auto
option phy phy0
option hwmode 11g

config wifi-iface

option device radio0
option mode sta
option ssid GoogleWiFi

My /etc/config/network also includes the following entry:

config interface radio0

option proto dhcp

Am I doing something wrong? It seems that "wifi up" is ignoring the dhcp configuration. Because of this problem, the system can't practically function in sta mode. Thanks.

I should mention that if I use the above configuration and then run "udhcpc -i wlan0" manually, the connection works. Thanks.

Your wifi-iface section is missing "option network radio0"
