Hmm, it should just work.

If you can ping your Amiga from OS X, then it means that communication works both way (after all, ping is sending icmp echo and waiting for reply from the other machine).

If you have DHCP server on your network then just put into your rc.conf:
Code:
rc_configured=YES # if missing or set to NO
ifconfig_ne0="dhcp"
Then do
Code:
/etc/rc.d/network restart
All settings will be updated automatically. Alternatively you can just try to use configure the interface from command line.
Code:
dhclient ne0
Static configuration (without DHCP) is a bit more complicated:

Set gateway in /etc/rc.conf :
Code:
rc_configured=YES
defaultroute="192.168.0.1"
Put interface configuration in /etc/ifconfig.ne0 :
Code:
inet 192.168.0.68 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
Put your DNSes into /etc/resolv.conf :
Code:
nameserver 192.168.0.1
Then restart network:
Code:
/etc/rc.d/network restart
Also... take a look at your dmesg, sometimes ne0 does not get detected due to infamous A1200 PCMCIA card reset bug. Solution is to remove the card and insert it again.

If you are sure that the network setting are OK, then double check configuration on other machines (like firewalls, etc.). Also, what error does ping give when trying to reach other machines?

Now I'm away from my amigas and can't check above examples, but you should get the picture .
