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?

I am having the same problem with a Sparc running 2.7. Maybe we can share info.

btw: Where are you geographically located? I am thinking this is something they have set
up to prevent masquerading because I have had this sparc on several networks during its life with nearly identical networking configurations. My cable modem is thru TCI on the
West Coast.

I had the same problem.  You also need to put the IP of your gateway in your /etc/defaultrouter.
