Comment (by kenmoore):

 '''User and Root Passwords'''
 Between PC-BSD 9.1 and 9.2 we switched to using "sudo" for getting
 administrator privileges rather than "su". This means that it now only
 requires the user to be in the allowed groups, and then you just need the
 user password. If you want to set it up to use the root password instead,
 just run "visudo" and modify your sudo rules appropriately.

 '''System Administration'''
 What KDE tools are you using to administrate the system? KDE is written
 for Linux, so quite often their tools do not work properly on a FreeBSD
 system if you are trying to modify aspects of the base OS. This is why we
 provide the PC-BSD Control panel with utilities for doing system
 administration (like changing/modifying users) on a FreeBSD system. I
 suppose it is possible that something you did with a KDE tool is impacting
 general user permissions on the system, but we would need more information
 before we could say that with any certainty.

 '''Device State'''
 It looks like your network device (Marvell Yukon 88E8057 Gigabit Ethernet)
 is supported by the msk driver[1], so I am not seeing anything out of the
 ordinary there. Is there a possibility that your network card is starting
 to fail on the hardware level? Do you have another card lying around that
 you can plug in to see if this is the case?
