Can you ping a numeric ip address on the internet? If you can, it's a
nameserver (/etc/resolv.conf) issue. If not, it's a networking problem.

I'm not aware how you could network without an ip address and subnet
mask. What's the exact output of ifconfig? What is your /etc/rc.conf?
Specifically, what lines are there of the form:
ifconfig_[interface name]="inet [ip address] netmask [subnet mask]"
Have you tried using ifconfig to give an ip address to your interface(s)?
