My cable internet service is not initialized on boot. How do I initialize a DCHP connection to the internet?

I had the same problem when I started working with Frenzy. Have you tried to go to the Frenzy menu?
Frenzy Menu
====> COnfigure
========> Configure Network
and follow the prompts for your adapter?

It should work for you. Also, In my situation, I had to add a "default route" to make my system work. That is because I use a small 5 port router on the inside of my cable-modem. You may need to do the same. If so, then use the command:
"route add default" (the is the internal address of your router if you have one.) At least that is what I had to do to get it to work. But now (for me) all is well, the internet traffic started flowing.
Hope that helps!

Thanks for the tip! However, in doing the Configuration I get a message that everything was properly set up and configured, but then following this I still have no internet connection.

1st initialise your network with ifconfig

example: ifconfig rl0

next you want to add a route for the traffic to flow like qzz1k said.

example: route add default

Add a nameserver entry in /etc/resolv.conf (usually your router IP will work as a DNS server too).


Your internet should then work. No need for fancy menus, just basic FreeBSD knowledge.
