I 've not been able to properly configure Solaris 7 x86 for my cable modem.  I can ping my gateway but nothing else.  When I ping the DNS servers I get a network unreachable from gateway.  I installed "other" for networks and noticed I did not have a resolv.conf file.  I created one and entered the info but still nothing.  What other files do I need to create/modify?

Ok.. a couple of things come to mind..

Did you add "dns" to the hosts: line of the /etc/nsswitch.conf file?

have you setup your gateway utilizing the /etc/defaultrouter file?

did you originally configure this machine specifically for this network? if not it may be easier to sys-unconfig and redo things, although you will have to create the resolv.conf, change the nsswitch.conf and defaultrouter files again.

Try those and if you have any more problems let me know.
