# ifconfig <device> down
# ifconfig <device> <ip> netmask <netmask>
# ifconfig <device> up
# route delete default
# route add default gw <gateway>
# cp /etc/resolv.conf /etc/resolv.conf.orig
# echo "nameserver <dns server>" > /etc/resolv.conf
# echo "nameserver <other dns server>" >> /etc/resolv.conf
# host freebsd.org
# ping -c 4 freebsd.org

Please check the man page if you face any syntax error with the command.
