Need help with networking

I can't or i don't know how to put up a network and internet on sun solaris 10. I looked and found some stuff on forums around net but I'm missing a few files. Like, "defaultrouter", "resolve.conf", ping is not working ( host unreachable), my card is "lo0" when I use ifconfig -a comand. Should I create those files, put ip addresses in? I tried to change my ip address in "hosts" it is changed but no effect.

Please help!Smilie

lo0 is the loopback interface! you can't use it for real traffic. post the output of "dladm show-link" and we can help you get your config done...

I don't know even if my NIC is recognized, by everything I tried so far i think not, how can i check device list? how will i install it when i don't have access to internet to get drivers? And after I run sysunconfig, on startup it doesn't ask me nothing about network settings, only device that ifconfig shows is "lo0" virtual interface, -a plumb gives me nothing. I think maybe I chose when installing Solaris, non networking version thinking that its going to be easy to set it up later. Do i need to install some addons or I can make it work with thing I got?

maybe you should give as a hardware overview or check the hcl's for support of your hardware!

Try posting the result of running "dmesg". Do you see your network card mentioned?
