You forgot natd.
Am guessing your DSL or cable modem is doing NAT and assigning an
address to your FreeBSD system. The modem will only accept traffic from
the IP address it gave your machine. So when your other network routes
thru the FreeBSD machine the modem igores it. Use natd to map that
network traffic to the FreeBSD machine's external IP address.
