Isn't that the default for VMware? I remember people having losts of problems with the pcn driver in VMware and choosing a different interface emulation with AE and e1000g were the most frequent. If this is a vmware setup you should probably consider changing the virtual machine in the same way, the VMWare pcn / Solaris combo doesn't ( or at least didn't) work too well.
