NAMEde - DEC DC21x4x Ethernet device driver
SYNOPSISTo compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file:
Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf5:
DESCRIPTIONThe ifconfig driver provides support for the Ethernet adapters based on the Digital Equipment DC21x4x based self-contained Ethernet and Fast Ethernet chips.
The ifconfig driver supports the following media types:
- Enable autoselection of the media type and options
- Set 10Mbps operation on the 10baseT port
- Set 10Mbps operation on the BNC port
- Set 10Mbps operation on the AUI port
- Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation
- Set 100Mbps operation
- Set 100Mbps operation (4-pair cat-3 cable)
The ifconfig driver supports the following media options:
- Set full duplex operation
Note that the media types available depend on the particular card in use. Some cards are explicitly programmed to a particular media type by a setup utility and are not changeable.
Use the ifconfig(8) command and in particular the -m flag to list the supported media types for your particular card.
The old ``ifconfig linkN'' method of configuration is not supported.
HARDWAREAdapters supported by the ifconfig driver include:
- Adaptec ANA-6944/TX
- Cogent EM100FX and EM440TX
- Corega FastEther PCI-TX
- D-Link DFE-500TX
- DEC DE435, DEC DE450, and DEC DE500
- ELECOM LD-PCI2T, LD-PCITS
- I-O DATA LA2/T-PCI
- SMC Etherpower 8432, 9332 and 9334
- ZNYX ZX3xx
- "de%d: waking device from sleep/snooze mode"
- The 21041 and 21140A chips support suspending the operation of the card.
- "de%d: error: desired IRQ of %d does not match device's actual IRQ of %d"
- The device probe detected that the board is configured for a different interrupt than the one specified in the kernel configuration file.
- "de%d: not configured; limit of %d reached or exceeded"
- There is a limit of 32 ifconfig devices allowed in a single machine.
- "de%d: not configured; 21040 pass 2.0 required (%d.%d found)"
- "de%d: not configured; 21140 pass 1.1 required (%d.%d found)"
- Certain revisions of the chipset are not supported by this driver.
