or maybe since you installed from an image (not over a network) the resolv.conf was never created.
heres how i create it, never tried this freebsd though: seq --format="nameserver 4.2.2.%g" 1 5 > /etc/resolv.conf alternatively just adding this line: nameserver 22.214.171.124 or whatever your dns server besides 126.96.36.199 if you'd rather should suffice. -Adele (sent from my gphone!)

To resolve external hosts you need to enter the dns server IP in the /etc/resolv.conf file. It is not resolvE.conf. Hope this will help you.
