I don't know much about cable modems, however, unless it uses DHCP, I
agree that you will need an IP for the "defaultgateway" entry in

You'll want to set gateway_enable="YES" in your rc.conf. And your'll
probably need to run natd. See "man natd", but basically set
natd_enable="YES", and natd_interface and natd_flags to something
sensible, in rc.conf.

Hope this helps,
