No address record indicates something wrong with name resolving. Is /etc/resolv.conf setup correctly? Can you ping http://www.google.com?

As root, try 'dhclient <nic>', where <nic> is the card that shows up in ifconfig, like rl0, fxp0, xl0, etc.

See also /usr/shared/docs/handbook/network-dhcp.html (or follow the first link below)
