Hello.  I'm sorry to hear you're having trouble.

Have you attempted static assignment to another address, such as (something not 33, but within your "pool")?

# ifconfig dc0 down
# ifconfig dc0 inet netmask
# ping

What does `arp -a` say?  Does ping work if you call it with
`ping -I dc0`?  What does `traceroute`
give you?  And, I've only seen output for the one interface
(maybe I overlooked something in your posts), what is the
output of "ifconfig -a" --- is there some other interface
that could be causing route problems and therefore "network
unreachable" from ping(8)?

It does seem rather odd, so I wonder if there's something we
are all overlooking.  Since no one but you is there, we can't
tell you what it is, but only guess.  Maybe something 
above will give us all a clue :-)

Also respectfully, ;-)
