Bug problem with Solaris in Network configuration

WEe have installed Intel version of Solaris 8 in a machine .we skipped the network configuration at the begning.we selected unnetworked.Now we need to connect the same machine to a network.
We configured the Card using ifconfig but its taking the ip address itself as the Default G/W.
I need help in configuring the Default g/w so that it can be connected to the network.

To put the machine in network u first put the network card then boot the machine......during booting it ask tht it is booting frm the first known bootable device that is the system hard disk and if u want to interrupt press any key to boot frm any other media......

Press any key to interupt the booting frm system harddisk it will once again scan for hardware config..and detect the new network card....and ask for the boot it frm the default system disk as before.............and during booting look for the network interface it is configuring like elxl0 or hme0 etc etc...

note that interface.....and after booting make one file /etc/hostname.<interface name> and put the ip address u want to give in tht file..and save it..

now u configure the network address.
ifconfig -a <interfacename> <ip> <mask><broadcast>

put the default GW in file /etc/defaultrouter

i think Prem can do sys-unconfig and do the config once again .Prem if u give this command then the machine will reboot after it comes up it will reconfigure the things again on that time u can give the ip add and G/W.U can try this also if u wish to do.

sys-unconfig will set up your IP connectivity, but does not prompt for the default gateway. You will have to create a /etc/defaultrouter file containing the IP of the gateway.
