Some troubleshooting should be helpful. ifconfig, resolv.conf. Then
try to go out. Ping, traceroute. The very problem might be on mac.
It has to pass and probably nat packets. If I remember well, the kernel
is mach, microkernel. It is different than freebsd and resembles hurd in
some instance. You should have forwarding allowed, not just in firewall,
I think. Then, new macs use modern protocols like "n". Check again
all options to have "g" included.
At first, try name resolution.
