Networking problems with 5.3-BETA6/7

I'm trying to install 5.3-BETA6 onto an HP Presario SA4000Z. [AMD64
using an nForce3 250 chipset]. I've also upgraded to RELENG_5 and the
problem remains.

The network configures as "fwe0" and appears to have the correct IP
address, but if I attempt to ping the gateway, I get a "Host is down"
error. I've tried using "fwip0" instead, but I get the same error.

I can provide more [system] details if needed....

So, any ideas what to try next to get the network functional??
