Solaris won't connect to the internet

I recently installed Sun OS 10 but I don't think it is recognizing my network card. Both the Solaris desktop and the JDS won't let me establish an internet connection. I've tried everything I can think of in terms of software settings and guides I've found online even make references to links that aren't on my system.

For example, one guide I read said to go here in the JDS:


Hardware does not show up in the menu on my system! This is the third OS I've tried to run on my system and it is the only one giving me a hard time with this. Windows XP and Red Hat Linux 9 connect to the internet without any problem.

Thanks for any help or suggestions you can offer.

I can suggest you to give us details about what network H/W you are using,
what messages you got, what you tried, if you check your NIC against
the Solaris HCL, etc ...
Hard to guess what is wrong without a slightest piece of concrete information.
