Setting up Solars 10 for Internet

Looking for some advice on how to get an internet connection from my Digital Modem.

I just installed Solaris 10 on x86. I believe that I don't have the correct configurations. Ifconfig -a shows my nic card as iprb0 so I am guessing Im ok with that since it sees it.

I just copied the same addressing that my functional PC is using now.

I have noticed that when I look at my Connection Properties tab I see that I am receiving, but nothing is going out.

Anyone care to give me a list of things to go through?

There are quite a few intel "etherexpress" cards that are compatible with the solaris driver "iprb", and some don't work by default.

You may need to an entry for it in /etc/driver_aliases.

Intel's vendor ID is 8086. So the card's pci ID will be 8086,<something>

run the command
# prtconf -pv | prtdev

And find the appropriate PCI id.
It will be something like:
iprb "pci8086,c"

Have a look in /etc/driver_aliases to see if there isn't an entry for it already in there, is missing or incorrect then add/modify it.

# touch /reconfigure
# init 6

I must not be using the correct syntax, when I run the command # prtconf -pv | prtdev, it tells me prtdev: not found.

prtconf -pv | grep 8086

Yes this did produce the following output to the screen:

compatible:'pci8086,1229,8086.a.5'+'pci8056,1229.8086,a' + 'p

subsystem-Vendor id:00008086
vendor id 00008086
compatible:'pci8086,1229.5' + pci8086,1229.8086.a'+'p
ci8086,a'+'pci8086,1229.5 + pci8086,1229'+'pciclass,020000'+pciclass.02

subsystem-vendor-id 00008086
vendor=id 00008086
