you'll get better results if you send a mail with your issue to one of
the FreeBSD mailing lists, in this case questions at freebsd.org. The
problem report database is a platform for solving specific problems that
are already encircled. Your problem seems to be very general.
You should tell the *accurate* error message from your log file if you
want useful feedback. Furthermore it looks like that you have more than
one problem. Setting up a DHCP server doesn't make sense if networking
doesn't work properly. I would deal with this at first.
How did you configured your network adapter in /etc/rc.conf? What's the
configuration of your LAN? Show the output of "ifconfig" and "netstat
-r". After you've told this, then somebody might be able to give advise.
