help setting up dhcp client - FreeBSD

hello all, My cable provider just changed my ip address and for some reason my dhcp client is unable to pick that ip address up or netmask up. I tried using ifconfig inet "my ipaddress" netmask "255.255.255.0" but no luck. I also tried oneof my windows systems and it seemed to pick it up fine. Can anyone help? -- Antoine W. Solomon Jr....

    you can also add it to /etc/rc.conf
    ifconfig_<interfacename>="DHCP"

    Try this
    # dhclient -r dc0
    # dhclient -v dc0
    and check the results
    also check the file /var/db/dhclient.leases

    PS: Do you have a firewall configured?
