After you have removed the card, all information about its IP address
&c is lost.  You either need to use dhcp (see dhclient(8) and
"dhclient" variable in rc.conf) or configure the interface/routing
manually (ifconfig ne0 ...; route add default ...  etc).

I'm not sure, but from a cursory look "/etc/rc.d/network start"
*might* do the right thing if you have the address and default route
in rc.conf, but rc.d/network also does a lot of extra stuff.
