They're "filesets" not "packages". Both end in .tgz but they have different contents.

Nameservers, even Google's 8.8.8.8, will not be able to resolve addresses if they are unreachable. It is possible you are attempting to use a NIC that is not working with bsd.rd. No functioning network means no resolved IP addresses.

This might be because of firmware requirements, or a change in firmware requirements -- some drivers changes might require specific firmware versions.

My advice is to look to a NIC firmware problem. More information from you -- such as a dmesg, or the output of "ifconfig" -- might lead to better advice.
