As I wrote - all interfaces are on the same subnetwork and a DHCP
server is not likely "to know" from what kind of hardware a request
is coming.  Again - no problems with DHCPOFFER on wireless

Well, no.  Although it is not very likely that something like that
will change by itself on a router this was one of the first things I
checked.  And no, a router software was NOT updated in the meantime
and non-Fedora clients work like worked before.

Unfortunately there is not too much of log I can find there.

This is not the case here.  At least in this moment.  In any case
this server is marked as "dhcp-authoritative" and you may have more
that one active DHCP server on a network if they are properly
