Just in case you went with this, and are having problems with applications 

I have one, and had problems with the dns proxy that runs on the router - this 
is the DNS server address that is given to devices behind the 
router by DHCP. It worked fine in Windows, but caused some  dns lookups to 
fail on FreeBSD 5.3.

A simple work-around is to turn-off DCHP in FreeBSD, setup a fixed local ip 
address and set your ISP's DNS servers manually in resolv.conf.
