[PC-BSD Testing] Can't access server in jail after changing network settings

Just noticed when PC boots up and reports starting jail - shows error message: BIND can't assign requested address.

What caused this and how do I fix it?

I had a custom AMP stack running fine in a jail.  

I accessed this on the local machine with Firefox with no problems.

Then I decided to expose the server to the internet by reconfiguring the network card to use a static IP rather than DHCP because you can't do port forwarding in a router on a DHCP network.

I've gotten this to work fine in the past using a Lynksys router, but now using a Dlink and port forwarding just wouldn't work for some reason.  Changing the netcard config also made accessing the server locally MUCH slower, like 15 seconds to access a page.  I had this same problem in PCBSD 7.1.1 before - accessing the IP with a browser on the same machine was really slow compared to another PC from the internet.  That system did not use a jail - the AMP stack was custom installed

I set everything back to the way it was but it had no effect so I did a complete system upgrade.  Now I cannot access the server at all - no response.

I can ping the jail's IP no problem however.

I made no changes to the firewall which enabled the same exceptions as before for HTTP.

Also, after the upgrade from the DVD, the Warden would not run.  Got an error stating that the program information could not be found, or something like that.  So I reinstalled it and here I am, stuck.  Had the same scenario when I upgraded from 7.1.1 to 8 a few weeks ago.  Reimported the jail and still not working.

I believe this has nothing to do with the router as the jail's IP is local, right?

Why did changing the net settings block the jail, even after resetting them?  What would cause the server to slow down in response so much, before?
