When you did the installation, do you specially execute the install
network option?  There is an option to configure any found network cards
with DHCP.  There are additional, optional installation steps you can,
it's offered after the main installation.

You could also paste the contents of /etc/rc.conf and that would tell
everyone how you configured your network card or if it's not configured
at all.
