[Solved]Connecting to internet via adsl router
My network at work uses static ip addresses and a class A mask (10.x.x.x 255.0.0.0).
The network has a Netgear DG 834G adsl/modem/router which the Windows systems use to access the internet. In the Windows TCP/IP properties boxes I find the following: IP address 10.0.0.nnn; subnet mask 255.0.0.0; default gateway 10.0.0.1; preferred DNS server 126.96.36.199.
I'm trying to access the FreeBSd ftp site to update my ports tree but I cannot reach the internet.
I've reviewed the relevant sections in Handbook and searched FreeBSD.org and Google but I'm having trouble seperating the information out.
Using sysinstall I've set the network interface to 10.0.0.4/255.0.0.0, the IPv4 gateway to 10.0.0.1; nameserver to 188.8.131.52.
I can ping other systems on the lan.
So, finally, what steps have I missed out in the configuration, and where could I have found this information myself? TIA.

Your freebsd system is already installed?
#ifconfig [nic card(.ko)] inet [0.0.0.0] netmask [0.0.0.0]
#route add default [192.168... (or 10. . . )...
a... substitute the nic card name, ie re0, fxp0
b... proper values in the ifconfig above
c... proper value in the route add default
My understanding (very limited) is that if your firewall allows it, that
will connect you if the router firewall allows it, and the router is one-not-the-other
type... (the latter needing auth and/or pppoe and/or...)
So in one case at least, figuring out the values above (you can search ifconfig's
for similar network values on the web) may work.
Sorry no time to actually re-read your post, I am limited as to the amount of
time I can browse forums...
using /LOOKAT/ with /var/db/pkg files and portmaster/aliases/pipes/find/grep to meteorically speedup port upgrades/installs...
