If an <acronym>IPv6</acronym> router is not available, select <guibutton>[ No ]</guibutton> and input the following addressing information in this menu:
IPv6 Static Configuration
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-configure-network-interface-ipv6-static' md5='__failed__'
<literal>IPv6 Address</literal> - The <acronym>IPv6</acronym> address assigned to this computer. The address must be unique and not already in use by another piece of equipment on the local network.
<literal>Default Router</literal> - The <acronym>IPv6</acronym> address of the network's default gateway.
The last network configuration menu is used to configure the Domain Name System (<acronym>DNS</acronym>) resolver, which converts hostnames to and from network addresses. If <acronym>DHCP</acronym> or <acronym>SLAAC</acronym> was used to autoconfigure the network interface, the <literal>Resolver Configuration</literal> values may already be filled in. Otherwise, enter the local network's domain name in the <literal>Search</literal> field. <literal>DNS #1</literal> and <literal>DNS #2</literal> are the <acronym>IPv4</acronym> and/or <acronym>IPv6</acronym> addresses of the <acronym>DNS</acronym> servers. At least one <acronym>DNS</acronym> server is required.
DNS Configuration
_ external ref='bsdinstall/bsdinstall-configure-network-ipv4-dns' md5='__failed__'
Once the interface is configured, select a mirror site that is located in the same region of the world as the computer on which FreeBSD is being installed. Files can be retrieved more quickly when the mirror is close to the target computer, reducing installation time.

Troubleshooting
<primary>installation</primary> <secondary>troubleshooting</secondary>
This section covers basic installation troubleshooting, such as common problems people have reported.
Check the Hardware Notes (<link xlink:href="@@URL_RELPREFIX@@/releases/index.html">https://www.freebsd.org/releases/index.html</link>) document for the version of FreeBSD to make sure the hardware is supported. If the hardware is supported and lock-ups or other problems occur, build a custom kernel using the instructions in <xref linkend="kernelconfig"/> to add support for devices which are not present in the <filename>GENERIC</filename> kernel. The default kernel assumes that most hardware devices are in their factory default configuration in terms of <acronym>IRQ</acronym>s, <acronym>I/O</acronym> addresses, and <acronym>DMA</acronym> channels. If the hardware has been reconfigured, a custom kernel configuration file can tell FreeBSD where to find things.
Some installation problems can be avoided or alleviated by updating the firmware on various hardware components, most notably the motherboard. Motherboard firmware is usually referred to as the <acronym>BIOS</acronym>. Most motherboard and computer manufacturers have a website for upgrades and upgrade information.
Manufacturers generally advise against upgrading the motherboard <acronym>BIOS</acronym> unless there is a good reason for doing so, like a critical update. The upgrade process <emphasis>can</emphasis> go wrong, leaving the <acronym>BIOS</acronym> incomplete and the computer inoperative.
If the system hangs while probing hardware during boot, or it behaves strangely during install, <acronym>ACPI</acronym> may be the culprit. FreeBSD makes extensive use of the system <acronym>ACPI</acronym> service on the i386 and amd64 platforms to aid in system configuration if it is detected during boot. Unfortunately, some bugs still exist in both the <acronym>ACPI</acronym> driver and within system motherboards and <acronym>BIOS</acronym> firmware. <acronym>ACPI</acronym> can be disabled by setting the <literal>hint.acpi.0.disabled</literal> hint in the third stage boot loader:
<userinput>set hint.acpi.0.disabled="1"</userinput>
This is reset each time the system is booted, so it is necessary to add <literal>hint.acpi.0.disabled="1"</literal> to the file <filename>/boot/loader.conf</filename>. More information about the boot loader can be found in <xref linkend="boot-synopsis"/>.
Using the Live <acronym>CD</acronym>
The welcome menu of <application>bsdinstall</application>, shown in <xref linkend="bsdinstall-choose-mode"/>, provides a <guibutton>[ Live CD ]</guibutton> option. This is useful for those who are still wondering whether FreeBSD is the right operating system for them and want to test some of the features before installing.
The following points should be noted before using the <guibutton>[ Live CD ]</guibutton>:
To gain access to the system, authentication is required. The username is <systemitem class="username">root</systemitem> and the password is blank.
As the system runs directly from the installation media, performance will be significantly slower than that of a system installed on a hard disk.
This option only provides a command prompt and not a graphical interface.
FreeBSD Basics
This chapter covers the basic commands and functionality of the FreeBSD operating system. Much of this material is relevant for any <trademark class="registered">UNIX</trademark>-like operating system. New FreeBSD users are encouraged to read through this chapter carefully.
