Just to be sure that I don't have a misconfigured firewall on the FBSD box, I installed FBSD on my laptop, plugged it into a different network - works fine, I can surf the web. Then I plug it into the school's network, and http doesn't work, but ping and ftp can reach the outside world (though again, it's slow).

A couple suggestions:

1) wrap your lines at 70 character or so;

2) check a windows client which can browse easily and see whether they're
using any settings that suggest a proxy server.  If you do find a proxy
server in use, configure your FreeBSD machine to use the same settings.
