You will need an ADSL router with an ethernet interface.  You would then set up your Solaris box to use DHCP and use the ethernet connection.

If you have PCI card DSL router, you would have to try to find Solaris drivers for that card.  I doubt you will have much luck, but you never know.  Probably would be better off buying a new external router off ebay (they're around $50).  Either a Cisco 675 or 678 would probably do the trick, but I would check with your provider as to what they support first.  You can fry the ports on their DSLAM if you use the wrong router (and they are usually not too happy when that happens :->).
