I haven't tried wireless yet, or even wired on a Thinkpad, but a few
minutes ago I finished upgrading (via fedup) to Fedora 21 on my home
desktop, and dhcp (as a client) isn't working. I'm able to get the network
working fine using a static connection configured in NetworkManager, but I
haven't been able to get an address via dhcp.  I haven't had time to do
more than the quickest google search for Fedora 21 dhcp problems, but I
haven't found anything.

So I'm just suggesting you might check the logs for the dhcp negotiation
and see if that's happening.
