I have a Cisco 877W w/ IOS 12.4-15.T7 that does not provide dhcp addresses to wireless clients. The Wired ethernet clients can receive addresses but not the wireless. I have the exact same router, config and O.S. with 4 other client's routers but have not seen this issue. Is there anything I can debug or is there anything wrong with the attached config?

Actually it turns out the config was fine. The issue was the Passphrase itself. I was generating passwords 63 characters in length with symbols included. Question marks in the passphrase are misconstrued by the command line as an actual question, not part of the passphrase. Thus, the client's passphrase never matched because any password with a question mark was always truncated at the question mark.

Problem solved......no more question marks in the passphrase!
