(I have removed extraneous data)

SO ... the problem is that the second NIC which is connected to my hub - (in my case rl1) is not UP.
WHY isn't it UP? Presumably something missing in rc.conf?

Hope someone can help.
Looks like the second NIC isn't properly configured (or configured at all).
Not only is it not up, but it has no IP information.
Can you manually start it ala:
ifconfig rl0 inet netmask
(pick your own IP range if you like)

If manually starting it works, review your rc.conf settings.  If you can't
find anything wrong, post your rc.conf to the list and we'll take a gander
at it.
