[...]Can you ping a numeric ip address on the internet? If you can, it's a nameserver (/etc/resolv.conf) issue. If not, it's a networking problem.
when i try to ping google.ca i get
cannot resolve google.ca :host name lookup failure
I'm not aware how you could network without an ip address and subnet mask. What's the exact output of ifconfig? What is your /etc/rc.conf? Specifically, what lines are there of the form:doing an ifconfig i get no inet or subnet just the active status
ifconfig_[interface name]="inet [ip address] netmask [subnet mask]"
Have you tried using ifconfig to give an ip address to your interface(s)?
