>Description:
ifconfig output:

dc0: flags=108843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST) mtu 1500
options=<MVLAN_MTU>
inet6 <ommited>
inet 0.0.0.0 netmask 0xff000000 broadcast 255.255.255.255
ether <ommited>
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX <full-duplex> )
status: active

/etc/rc.conf related lines:
ifconfig_dc0="DHCP"

/etc/hosts
::1 localhost localhost
l127.0.0.1 localhost localhost

/etc/dhclient.conf 
FreeBSD Defaults, a blank file

ping to the router/dhcp = 100% PacketLoss (1.1.1.1)
ping to the host (aka localhost) = 0% PacketLoss so it is 'working'

from an up/down on ifconfig

dc0: failed to force tx and rx to idle state

dhclient dc0

Can't bind to dhcp address: address is already in use

NIC:
CNET PRO200WL PCI Fast Ethernet Adapter - Wired Ethernet

>How-To-Repeat:
      Seems to either be A) me or B) a driver issue for FreeBSD's default driver package for the full 2cd version.
>Fix:
      No Idea, I've tried linuxquestions.org and freebsdforums.org and EFNet's #FreeBSDHelp
