I'm using VirtualBox 1.5.4 with NAT networking and a FreeBSD 7RC1 client. I had to manually set the media of the networkadapter to get things working: ifconfig pcn0 media 10baseT/UTP

I just tried to start RC2 iso:

And the DHCP fails to configure the network. Should we raise the priority of this bug?

I'm having the same issue. Is there already a fix for this?

No fix available. FreeBSD does not like our PCNet network adapter for some reasons. But changing the network adapter from PCNet-III to PCNet-II in the VM settings should make the network card work.
