connecting a FreeBSD-4.10 to Internet using DSL with static ip address - FreeBSD

Hello everyone! I have a FreeBSD-4.10 machine and a newly connected DSL with static ip address.

    Default connecting a FreeBSD-4.10 to Internet using DSL with static ip address

    Hello everyone!

    I have a FreeBSD-4.10 machine and a newly connected DSL with static ip
    address. The DSL connection setup uses an ADSL modem (SMC7901BRA)
    which has 1 connection to my phone line and 1 connection to my LAN
    card using UTP cable. In Windows XP setup, the process of setting up
    Internet is just as easy as configuring the TCP/IP prpoerties with the
    static ip address given to me and other details such as gateway, dns,
    subnet mask etc.

    My machine has a dual-boot WinXP and FreeBSD-4.10. As I've said above,
    I can easily connect to the Internet using the WinXP. But, I want to
    try FreeBSD to connect to the Internet, but it doesn't work.

    Here's what I did to test if I can connect to Internet via DSL using FreeBSD:
    1. Reboot or boot to FreeBSD-4.10
    2. Login as root
    3. /stand/sysinstall to assign IP address, gateway, and dns
    4. Reboot machine to make sure new IP settings take effect
    5. Do an ifconfig and see that the IP settings are correct
    6. I can ping my own IP address (static IP address of the DSL assigned
    by my ISP)
    7. When I try to ping the ISP's given gateway, I receive "ping to:
    Host is down".
    8. Seeing the modem status, the "LAN" and "SYNC" signals are up but
    the "DATA" is off.

    I have tried searching the net with FreeBSD+DSL but all I can read is
    about "PPPoE" which requires a "username" and "password" which I don't
    have. My DSL account is an "always on" account with a static IP
    address and I guess it doesnt have a username/password for connection
    to the ISP.

    Does FreeBSD need to detect my DSL modem if it is connected to the NIC
    using a UTP cable connected to the modem? Here's my setup:

    [DSL modem]<--------->[DSL Provider] (provides static IP address)
    |
    |
    |
    [FreeBSD's LAN card]

    Does anybody has an experience connecting FreeBSD to a DSL with a
    static IP address and has similar setup above?

    Actually my real purpose is to use FreeBSD as LAN gateway using the
    DSL connection. But I wanna try first connecting the FreeBSD machine
    as a stand-alone PC which uses the simple setup above. If this setup
    works, the gateeway setup will surely work too.

    Thank you very much!

    Just out of curiosity did your ISP give you a username and passwd ? Did
    your ISP provide the DSL Modem ?

    Certainly posting the rc.conf of your freebsd machine will help as might

    My DSL is always on and I get static IP, however, I do
    have a user name and password. I am in Australia by
    the way.

    You may try getting an ADSL modem+router, not just an
    ADSL modem. The router will connect to the ISP, and it
    is via PPPoE...., the modem provides DHCP, then you
    can connect your 4.10 to it. But then again, I do
    supply username and password to the ADSL router.

    Please find out from your ISP if you do get a
    username+ password.
