As root:

#ifconfig rl0

to manually config NIC's.  Use your driver
name/number and correct IP/netmask, of

I've never used it, but I think that

#/bin/sh /etc/netstart

might be the other way ... I'm pretty sure
that using a shell's "source" command isn't
going to do much for you, though...although
I'm often wrong.
