Help with Ethernet + lpiw + CubeMX + 207ZG

I am attempting to configure the Ethernet on a Nucleo-F207ZG board.
After two days of unsuccessful work and web search, I finally decided to ask your help.

Here are the operations executed:
1) creation of a new project with the latest CubeMX, selecting my Nucleo board and setting "All IP with default mode" (as suggested in Carmine Coviello's blog)
2) Activation of FreeRTOS and LPIW with default parameters
3) Cube code generation, compilation with GCC, upload, debug.

The scheduler runs, but there is no way to get an address from the DHCP server.
The code fails the first call to netif_is_link_up() so possibly the problem is before the DHCP. Anyway, an attempt with a static address failed as well.

The board is brand new, so I would exclude any hardware problems at the moment.

It seems that I am in good company of other developers struggling with this issue, yet I am not able to find a solution :-(

Any suggestions?
