No, I am sure of it because I used my rl0 to connect to the LAN and download all kinds of stuff from the Internet. At that point my FreeBSD was a just box behind a Linksys router connected to the Comcast cable modem and it worked just fine. Then I added IP filtering, rebuilt the kernel, and changed rc.conf along with some other files according to the info I found on the Internet. Now neither of my card works. I got it working some time ago for awhile though - I ran sysinstall/Config/Networking and asked for DHCP search. I actually got the IP address, host name and DNS server IP address from Comcast but then something changed and I never saw it again. I am really dissapointed by how much time I have spent on it without any decent result.

Perhaps you have the cables for rl0 and rl1 reversed?
