Why would you need to be connected to the Internet during the boot process? From the looks of things, it's failing even before the kernel is loaded.

The most probable reasons for the problems you're facing are:

1) You incorrectly created the floppy images, or they are corrupt.
2) The floppy disk or drive you're using is damaged.

There are other options for booting BSD on a system, if either via CD-ROM or PXE(netboot), it's still possible.

Personally, in my opinion, with all due respect, PEBKAC is a prime candidate for this error.
