#964: Control Panel/Network Configuration - serious issues!
  Reporter:  geostar          |      Owner:  kenmoore
      Type:  System Defect    |     Status:  assigned
  Priority:  critical         |  Milestone:
 Component:  Network Manager  |    Version:  10.0-RELEASE
Resolution:                   |   Keywords:  networking lan

Comment (by geostar):

 I attached a new zipped file that contains the "rc.conf, resolv.conf,
 dhclient.conf and hosts" and their content, right after installation of a
 fresh PC-BSD 10-RELASE OS (ver. in my original dmesg attachement) with KDE
 desktop option - as a default in the install! No configuration or edits
 (of any kind) were made, after the installation. Although, "ifconifg"
 shows dynamic LAN/IP assigned to the msk1 interface, there's no network
 connectivity to the GW/LAN IP. The network interface (msk1) IP is on the
 same LAN segment as the router that provided the IP! Somehow the msk1
 obtained the dynamic IP from the router, but rest of the network
 configuration failed!

 As additional note: I also tested PCBSD10-STABLE-p7-01-06-2014-x64*.iso,
 in the same system. That distribution had no issue with automagic
 configuration of networking  with dynamic LAN/IP, during initial
 installation. But, after the installation, I did experience same issues,
 as in PCBSD10-RELEASE, while trying to set-up static LAN/IP through PC-BSD
 Control Panel with the Network Configuration util.

 appropriately when you save your changes in the GUI?
