How to connect Solaris 10 to the internet ?!

ive installed a fresh copy of solaris 10 on a E3500 Server machine, i gave it a static IP address , 192.168.1.15 its a test server in our office (small office) we are using LINKSYS as our internet router and DHCP as well .. its IP is 192.168.1.1 and ive added this IP as Default route on the server , also the netmask which is 255.255.255.0 .. but i cant connect to the internet , i dont know y ?

i even tried to give the server dynamic IP address by DHCP and it couldn't connect as well ...


advise plz

P.S. the server is accessable through network .. the problem is in internet only !!

Make sure that /etc/defaultrouter contains the IP address of (you guessed it) your default router.

The output from netstat was truncated. You need a window 100 characters wide. But the important fields were there and it looks good. Can you ping that default router? If so, I would suspect your linksys thing. Does it need a setting to let you out?
