Question Cannot connect to network in Solaris 11

I want to install Solaris 11 Express on my x86 system.
I'm facing network driver problems.

I've 3 network cards:

1. Intel(R) 82579V Gigabit Network Connection
In Device Driver Utility, This device is displayed as Ethernet controller, Driver is UNK and its highlighted in RED.

2. Belkin USB Wireless Adaptor
In Device Driver Utility, This device is displayed as Basic Wireless USB Adapter, Driver is _usb_mid_. It is NOT highlighted in red.

3. NETGEAR WG311v3 54Mbps Wireless PCI Adapter
The driver of this device is UNK. This device has a lot of driver issues in other operating systems also, so I'm concerned about the first two only.

None of the device is working, and the network service switches to "NO NET" mode automatically. Devices (1) and (2) are detected in Ubuntu 11.04 without any additional installations.

I'm trying out Solaris for the first time. Can anyone help how can I connect to the network.
Thanks in advance.
