Guys,

Have you checked the SUN HCL?
Have you checked the X86 list at Bolthole?
http://www.bolthole.com/solaris/x86-laptops.html
Have you checked for any third party drivers?

What does it say?

Regards, C

Intel NICs are generally supported by the bundled iprb driver. "man iprb" for details.

What is the pci id of your precise model ?

Bug ID 6508679
Synopsis Intel PRO VE 10/100 Network Card Doesnt Work (Device ID 1064)
---snip---
Workaround
1. Open the file - /etc/driver_aliases
2. Add to the file - iprb "pci8086,1064"
3. Also add - iprb "pci8086,1064"
4. Open Terminal
5. Run "devlinks"
6. Run sys-unconfig

10. ife driver for intel 8255x fast ethernet chipset
This is an open source alternative for solaris iprb driver.


http://homepage2.nifty.com/mrym3/tai...e-0.9.0.tar.gz
The installer instructions are probably in the tar'd file.

I have not tested either of these so I don't know if they work.

Then make sure you have this line in /etc/driver_aliases:
Code:
iprb "pci8086,103d"
