Solaris x86 working perfectly and wirelessly

I expect anyone finding this via Google will be frustrated by this entry, but... After using what I think are internal tools and drivers only I have my Solaris x86 laptop now working perfectly with the wireless network in my flat. I also have an internal only tool that gives me a graphical interface to choose which network type to select and which lets me setup profiles so that I can quickly change IP addresses depending on my location and what I want to do. Fantastic! Here's my lovely assistant demonstrating my Toshiba S1 downloading Firefox from Blastwave.org, wirelessly and power cord free.

Internal drivers ? You don't mean the wireless drivers that are now available over on the OpenSolaris Laptop Community do you ? (let's hope Google can read comments ;-)

The OpenSolaris Laptop Community also has inetmenu and frkit available, in addition to the wireless drivers.

Now everyone can experience how easy it is to do mobile networking (wired and wireless) with Solaris x86.

Seems very cool, now if suspend-to-ram and suspend-to-disk works in Solaris x86... ;)
