Supported NIC not recognized by Install CD
According to http://wiki.openindiana.org/oi/Ethernet+Networking the Broadcom BCM5720 is supported by OpenIndiana,
but i cannot get it recognized by the Install CD. Ive tried to download the solaris drivers for this board direcly from Broadcom
website but cannot get it installed neither automatically or by option 2.
Any ideas? Ive found some issues related to these 'bge drivers' on Solaris but most of them were 1 year old, related to version 148.
The BCM5720 is a dual gigabit part of a Dell T420 (Tower), most knew as R420 (Rack version).

Yes. As a workaround, HP/Dell Tech Support and Broadcom provide the updated bge drivers for Solaris: bge - v15.4.3 and HP BRCMbge 15.2.3. Closing ticket. The Illumos ticket 3446 is open if they decide to update the source code for the Solaris provided one or get it from Oracle.
