The best is to check how your NIC card is configured:
It should indicate what card type you're using and how the
network is initialized. See the man page, which is well
What router are you using? Like a Linux or Windows machine
or is it an "embedded" router (one of thoses boxes that
connect to an ADSL line on one end and share it with 4 or 8
computers)? Without this info, it is difficult to get you

To make your PC a router, you need to have an Internet
access in the first place, that's right :-) Basically,
it should be "plug-and-play".
My first advice would be to configure FreeBSD as a DHCP
client and let the router do the config for you. When I first
installed FreeBSD, my wife was using our connection on a
Windows PC and, by the time the install finished and I could
log in, FreeBSD was already online: ping, portinstall, mozilla,
etc. worked flawlessly.
Let us have more details about your LAN if this does not help.
