try to reset the message with "fmadm repair or repaired" (depends on your solaris version). after that have a look if the message reappears. also check the output of "fmstat" for growing events on the specific fmri.
the provided path (pci@7c0/pci@0/pci@2/network@0) points to the onboard network interface "net2 on the backside or e1000g2 in solaris". so if the hardware is really faulty, you'll need a new motherboard!
network problems (on switch side or cable) can be root cause of the message. so resetting the message and checking for reappearence would be my first shoot!
