With NetBSD, sometimes dhcpcd works, sometimes dhclient works, sometimes neither.

FreeBSD uses dhclient, which works when the driver is OK (re or rsu).

DHCP server is an Arris cable modem which incorporates a router (part of the same device, leased from Time Warner Cable, now Charter under the brand name Spectrum.

System Rescue CD Linux uses DHCP, connects automatically upon booting.

Knowing how to configure the Ethernet directly, without dhcpcd/dhclient is useful.

When I update by building from source and test-boot the new kernel, if dhcpcd doesn't work right, I will be able to try direct configuration, and if that works, continue with the installworld part.
