I have installed FreeBSD succesfully on my Gateway M500 laptop. The only problem I have is that my laptop connects to the internet through a wireless router. My wireless card is working fine on the laptop and I can succesfully ping the router, but when I load up a webbrowser I get a "Cannot find webpage" error. So, it's confusing that the computer can connect to the router but not through the router to the internet. The output of ifconfig wi0 is:

         inet6 fe80::202:2dff:feb3:a0e%wi0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x5
         inet netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast
         ether 00:02:2d:b3:0a:0e
         media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (DS/11Mbps)
         status: associated
         ssid 1475 1:1475
         stationname "FreeBSD WaveLAN/IEEE node"
         channel 6 automode OPEN powersavemode OFF powersavesleep 100
         wepmode OFF weptxkey 1

Everything is setup fine with DHCP. Wep is disabled on my router right now so the wepmode I think shouldn't matter. Any help at all will be greatly appreciated.
