If you don't mind switching operating systems, (I prefer OpenBSD over
Solaris) there is support for all of the following GIGABIT cards (and
more) under OpenBSD on the Sparc64:
o The Alteon AceNIC V Gigabit Ethernet adapter (1000baseSX)
o The Alteon AceNIC V Gigabit Ethernet adapter (1000baseT)
o The 3Com 3C985-SX Gigabit Ethernet adapter (Tigon 1)
o The 3Com 3C985B-SX Gigabit Ethernet adapter (Tigon 2)
o The Netgear GA620 Gigabit Ethernet adapter (1000baseSX)
o The Netgear GA620T Gigabit Ethernet adapter (1000baseT)

A lot of Sun machines at work have SysKonnect gigabit interfaces. They
work fine for normal use, but for some reason packet filters
(snoop/tcpdump/etc) only capture outgoing (or is it incoming? only one
direction anyway) traffic on the SysKonnect interfaces. This can be
monstrously annoying when you're trying to troubleshoot something. The
hme interfaces on the same boxes work like you would expect, so I guess
it has to do with the SysKonnect drivers.
Has anyone else seen this? Am I missing some undocumented driver
parameter or something?
