My Internet connection on this computer is very iffy at best, not running as I
Motherboard is MSI Z77 MPOWER.
Ethernet is Realtek (re): good with NetBSD, Linux and Haiku, (Free,Open and
DragonFly)BSD bug out.
Only Internet connection for FreeBSD is Hiro H50191 USB-stick wireless adapter,
chipset RTL8191SU, device rsu.
Sometimes it connects. Running ifconfig (by itself), I get, whether connection
is working ot not,

Looks good, but running host on a valid domain, such as
;; connection timed out; no servers could be reached
Even when the connection is successful, it can quit any time without warning,
and only way I can tell is by trying to reach an internet domain.
I feel like Cinderella, but she had the advantage of knowing that her coach
would turn back to a pumpkin at exactly midnight.
Internet connectivity problems are the same whether I run FreeBSD-current or
10.0-STABLE. FreeBSD < 10.0 offers no internet connectivity at all.
Now I have to save this message, shutdown and boot into NetBSD to send it.
I also use NetBSD to update src, ports and doc trees with subversion.
