In this case, the green lights were on. It seems as though the failure
to contact the DHCP server was only momentary, but just long enough to
ensure that my gateway box was assigned an unregistered IP address by
the modem. The order of events was roughly
1) DHCP server off line
2) Modem fails to contact server
3) Modem assigns unregistered IP address to FBSD box.
4) DHCP server comes back on line
5) I check modem lights, which are all green, since the modem
can now communicate with the server.

Damn. Trumped by medical Latin. I hate it when that happens. :)
