I just got done installing FressBSD and am trying to give it internet access. I have my ethernet cord plugged in. There is a solid green light, and ifconfig shows
Code:
ifconfig

rl0:.....
media: Ethernet autoselect
status: active



Problem is, I still dont have internet. My /etc/rc.conf is blank (except for comments).
When I plugin in my ethernet cord, is it suppose to just work on the fly? Help

You should configure the device's IP address/netmask inside /etc/rc.conf:
Code:
ifconfig_rl0="DHCP"
for DHCP,
Code:
ifconfig_rl0="inet xyz.xyz.xyz.xyz netmask 255.255.255.0 media xyz"
otherwise.

If using DHCP, you may have to # dhclient rl0
