Hi Everybody,

I am very new to Solaris, after I install solaris-10, I can't find my internet interface.

I tried ifconfig -a and it return nothing.

I tried prtconf -pv I found my ethernet controller:
vendor-id: 000010ec
device-id: 00008139
name: 'pci5853,1'

I tried ifconfig rtl0 plumb
got the following error:
ifconfig: cannot open link "rtl0": DLPI link does not exist.

So, any one, please help me solve this problem.

Thank you,

Run dmesg | more
See if the system sees your card.

It's really strange that ifconfig -a didn't return anything.

Might be some irq conflicts. I have had to move cards around in slots before and it seems to fix it.

When you installed it you may have missed a step. It should have set it up then.

I agree on the ifconfig -a. Should have shown lo

Might try the newer opensolaris versions. The liv e version ought to run the nic. If so then install it.

I was out for the last few days, thank you for your reply.

However, when I ran the dmesg, I didn't see any network card listed.

Any other ideas?

You need to download drivers for your NIC and then install it/them.
