Hello Ross,

  FreeBSD as a gateway is very easy and simple to setup, but a very small 
mistake could
  stop your box from acting as a gateway,

  Please send the follow :
  the output of #ifconfg -a

2) output of #uname -a

3) copy of rc.conf file

4) Whats the lines you have changed in your kernel ?

you wrote
"no packets seem to be getting through"
do you mean your freebsd having an Internet but not giving clients and not 
acting as a gateway?
