well
I just installed freeBSD on my home, (5.2.1), and everything goes ok,

BUT, i cant get dhcp, working...


on sysinstall, if I try to make my dhcp to be discovered, it freezes up,

so i skiped this part


and then
after installing
everytime i try to run dhclient i get this: (i use cable modem):
DHCPDISCOVER on rl0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 5
DHCPOFFER from 200.167.40.1
DHCPREQUEST on rl0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67
DHCPREQUEST on rl0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67
DHCPDISCOVER on rl0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 4
DHCPOFFER from 200.167.40.1
DHCPREQUEST on rl0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67
DHCPREQUEST on rl0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67

and after this, it just goes on a infinite loop
i tried tcpdump to help me, but i just understand a line of tcpdump...

here is what is says:


any idea of how can i solve this???


Hi,


What IP address are you getting ? #ifconfig -a

What is in your #/etc/dhclient.conf ?

Hi

You need to send your cable company supplied hostname and use a modified version of the example in #man dhclient.conf
