who can help me with a network problem?
when I finish configuring my freebsd,I encounter a very touchy problem---FreeBSD detected my nic but after I configured my IP address I can't ping other machines in the my LAN why and what should I do ?
My FreeBSD release 3.4 and my nic is 3COM and the network interface is 3C509B.
Thanks in advance!

What's the IP of your NIC? What's the netmask? What's another IP and netmask on your network?

My computer is on the Network of Public Security of China,not the internet,my IP is 10.42.148.68 and my netmask is 255.255.255.128 ,my problem is that I can't ping other machines on the same LAN(my network neighbourhood),But when I use the command "arp -a",I get three MAC addresses on the LAN,but I still can't ping out---the error message is "the host is down" or "no host to route".Can you help me to solve the problem?

Yes, but what are the IP addresses and netmasks of the machines you are trying to ping?

The machine I trying to ping is the machine on the same LAN as mine,for example, my IP address is 10.42.148.68 and my neighbourhood is 10.42.148.66 and the netmask is both 255.255.255.128
