Hi All.

I got two answers from my question, which was this:

I'm getting a weird message when I try to boot my Solaris for Intel box;
WARNING: iprb0: no MII link detected. So my routing is all screwed up.
This is Solaris 2.7 on an Intel 450 box. Any ideas? Thanks.

I had the same issue. Try reconfiguring your interface card and manually
edit the routing tables. Put the desired routes in the /etc/init.d/inetinit
file and bounce the box.
I did that and it didn't work.

The other respondent, Karl MacMillan, hit the nail on the head with this:

This normally means that the network cable is faulty or not plugged in -
basically there is no link.

Turns out my office mate had disconnected our hub and he didn't tell me.
