Miscommunication. I *did* that. It pops up the info I need on the screen so fast then the screen disappears...I never have a chance to read the info!! What do??

Also, I found this info on a Web page built into my satellite interface:

IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
NAT IP Address:
NAT Subnet Mask:

So, now I've got the IP address and the subnet mask, but I still need to find out the IP address of the default gateway, the hostname, and the DNS server IP addresses. 

>However, I do not understand what you are trying to do.

I'm trying to configure FBSD so I can get online. There is an interface at setup that requests all this data. Also, the manual says to have this data handy (it is the manual I am currently referencing).

>Probably your interface uses DHCP. 

Yes, DHCP is enabled.

>You should type in
>and then configure your network interface. 

Yes, that is what I will do, but first I need the above questions answered, because that is the data I must enter!
