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.

doing an ifconfig i get no inet or subnet just the active status


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:

ifconfig_[interface name]="inet [ip address] netmask [subnet mask]"

and

defaultrouter="[router address]"

Have you tried using ifconfig to give an ip address to your interface(s)?
