but why it is behaving like this...any help

Code:
#ifconfig iwk0

	inet 192.168.11.14 netmask ffffff00 broadcast 192.168.11.255

# cat /etc/hosts

It looks like the first DNS server is part of the corporate network and could even be on the same subnet if the netmask has been set too tight.

Does running a:

Code:
# netstat -rn

report the expected default router?

Can traceroute and/or ping reach Google

If nslookup resolves www.google.com but not traceroute, you might have a hosts entry missing the dns service in the /etc/nsswitch.conf file.

Quite overkill and quite an old release too.

I would suggest you to install a recent Solaris Express or OpenSolaris release instead.
