Default I can DHCP but after that...nada on the net

So I have a laptop with an re0 (Realtek 8101E). I plugged an ethernet cable in and ran dhclient. I got an address.

However, an attempt to ping the router results in all packets lost. in fact, I can't seem to go anywhere - ssh, etc.

My dhcp'd address is (as an example). netstat -rn -f inet shows as the default gateway (that is the router and correct). The entry for is link#1 aka re0. The entry: (router MAC)

is the one that increases in the Use column when I try to ping.

I ran pfctl -d just to take pf out of the equation.

re0 shows an lladdr of 00:00:00:00:00:00, which is unusual, and dmesg shows an "unknown ASIC". The dhcp'd address, netmask, broadcast, DNS, etc. are all correct.

So I'm wondering if there is something I need to configure further to get networking working (this is my first attempt to set it up on this box and I'm a little rusty on OpenBSD networking).
