I just setup a freebsd box with the 5.1 release to be a gateway/firewall.
The installation was smooth and to setup the gateway/firewall with nat a lot of 
sources are available on Internet.
Here is my problem, I can't connect to Internet from the Freebsd box.
I have DSL and my ISP is AT&T, I have a static IP wich means I don't need to run PPP 
to connect.

FreeBSD Internet NIC is : 12.103.20.x

When I type ifconfig my NIC looks fine, up and running :

rl0 : 12.103.20.x

For information the freebsd box contains 2 NIC's one for Internet the other for the LAN (

If I ping myself no problem everything's fine, but I can't ping a web address. I don't know if it is possible under unix but I use to "ping www.yahoo.com" for example to know if it's well connected. But the best proof is when I try to install samba my freebsd gives a time out reaching the samba server on the web....

Do you have dns servers listed in /etc/resolv.conf? nameserver <nameserver> nameserver <nameserver>

arp -n -a , does that mention the router's ip and mac addres?

Try it (:
