Maybe the firewall blocks the responses.

Can this be?
If it is the firewall shouldn’t it then block in general? Both times I
rebooted today, at beginning I did not have an internet connection, but
disconnecting and connecting again (in networkmanager) it worked
immediately...

So reboot your system and see that you did not get an IP address. Please
send the output of the command "tail -30 /var/log/firewall".

here's the output:

meitli:~ # tail -30 /var/log/firewall
2015-06-01T17:13:33.499841+02:00 meitli kernel: [ 203.685506]
SFW2-INext-DROP-DEFLT IN=wlp3s0 OUT= MAC=
SRC=fe80:0000:0000:0000:ba8d:12ff:fe39:1bba
DST=ff02:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:00fb LEN=84 TC=0 HOPLIMIT=255
FLOWLBL=0 PROTO=UDP SPT=5353 DPT=5353 LEN=44

So, it is not the firewall. Only IPv6 packets with SPT=5353 DPT=5353 get
blocked, which is harmless. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicast_DNS for
an explanation on the protocol.

From your previous message the conclusion is that either your DHCP requests do
not reach the DHCP server or the responses do not reach your system.

You can analyze the first reason by having a system connected to the Ethernet
next to your router and collecting broadcast packages, a DHCP request is a
broadcast, and see if they arrive in that system. On that analyzing system you
can use wireshark to collect packages.

Analyzing the second reason is quite complicated, too complicated to explain.
You need something like an intermediate Ethernet bridge that passes on the
packages, but also copies these packages for analysis.
