Most adsl gateways/modems have a web based configuration system, you should be able to access it from: 

Look over the options and see if there is a "status" section, this will more then likely have the info you want.

You really should get a static ip from your isp if you are going to be running a server, better would be a small block of them.
You will also need to setup a static network and forward any ports from the dsl gateway to your freebsd box if you want to be able to access any services you are going to run.
