 Hello Faris,
 you'll get better results if you send a mail with your issue to one of 
 the FreeBSD mailing lists[1], 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.
 Regards Björn
