Ok, i am able to connect to my isp via a manual configuration of my network.
i set my ip address and my default route in rc.conf and i set my dns in

i now know that i am having problems connecting to my dhcp server.
i am in the process of changing the dhcp code (at line 159 in
i changed this to 128. Then i am going to rebuild everything.
i was not able to find out the ip address of the dhcp server that my isp uses so
i hope this solves the problem. any other suggestions? it seems odd that i would
have to make this kind of a change to get dhcp to work.. do i need to add
anything to my rc.conf to enable dhcp?

rebuild everything
cd /usr/src && make buildworld
cd /usr/src && make buildkernel
cd /usr/src && make installkernel
< reboot into single user mode >
boot -s
fsck -p
mount -a
cd /usr/src && mergemaster -p
cd /usr/src && make installworld
cd /usr/src && mergemaster
