HiCheck with your ISP.
Using an editor?
Please keep in mind that we don't spoon feed here, nobody will ever learn anything from that. You are expected to do some research on your own and it is expected that you know at least some of the basics of the command line.
I modified /etc/resolv.conf, with DNS entry.
Now when I run /etc/sbin/pkg,
I get no address found error.

HiRefer to the Handbook to resolve "No route to host" below:
HiConcerning ther internet, i would recommend that you configure it while you install freebsd from the usb the first time. As a new user, you will probably find it hard to setup interfaces for your internet. When you set up the internet properly when installing BSD, the installer will take care of setting up the interface for you. If you decide to go with wifi, you definitely need to install wifimgr package to manage easily different wifi connection. Secondly, When you setup your gui, i your recommend you start with gnome3 and follow the instructions provided in the handbook. As a new bsd user few months ago, i struggled a lot aobut all those stuff but it is after i started reading the handbook that I realized all the information you need is there.

You should not have to fill in anything for DHCP connections. They are all passed to your computer from the upstream DHCP server. Adding wrong things here during Memstick Installation will break networking.While Booting from USB, for first time I got message "DHCP Lease Acquisition failed", so continued with IP Address, Subnet Mask, Default Router & DNS entries and thereafter installed FreeBSD 11.2!
