freebsdtest# ifconfig de0
de0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet6 fe80::203:ffff:fe47:2b50%de0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x1
inet 192.168.1.2 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX)
Ok. Is this address (192.168.1.2) correct? Ie, is it from the DHCP server, and not something you have configured manually in /etc/rc.conf?
If so, try two things:
1) ping the interface itself: ping 192.168.1.2
does it work?
2) ping the ip address of the dhcp server (I'm guessing that this is
192.168.1.1, is that correct?): ping 192.168.1.1
does it work?
If your test here shows that the network interface is not working (ie. one of the tests fail to get an answer), you should give more information.
Route information: 'netstat -r'
and anything in the dmesg about your network interface, example:
'dmesg | grep de0'
Also, the lease (from the dhcp server) is recorded in the file
So if you do 'more /var/db/dhclient.leases.de0'
you will see what the dhclient has received. Does it look correct to you?
