There is a tool that will answer to that question:
http://www.sun.com/bigadmin/hcl/hcts/device_detect.jsp

Most third party network drivers are downloadable from here: http://homepage2.nifty.com/mrym3/taiyodo/eng/

Did you look at the listing? The link "ln" command failed, because a Makefile was already present. Type in "rm -f Makefile", then do the link again. Then type in "make". A "make install" option may not be present in that program.

I wonder if the README.txt file explains how to compile and install the driver.

Then reboot and have a look if the rf0 interface can be plumbed.
Code:
# ifconfig rf0 plumb

Are you sure you installed a driver matching your hardware ?

What says
Code:
/usr/X11/bin/scanpci
?

Your ethernet card should be supported out of the box with the rge driver.
You wifi one with the iwk one but that one probably only works with OpenSolaris based distributions.

"Out of the box" meant you are likely to already have it.

Under Solaris, interfaces only show up if they are plumbed.
Try:
Code:
devfsadm -v
ifconfig rge0 plumb
ifconfig -a
