Aloha and Mahalo Okay, that works. I dropped out of gnome and logged ina s root. I deleted all the append data in rc.conf and I deleted /usr/local/etc/rc.d/rc.local. I then rebooted. When I came back up ifconfig showed no ip address. I then did the "killall -9 dhclient" and the "sh /etc/netstart". After that completed ifconfig showed the ip address. So, what's happening? Is there a sequence problem or do I need to have a script run to kill dhclient and then run netstart?
Thanks for your time helping with this problem.
