31.Sh NAME
32.Nm de
33.Nd DEC DC21x4x Ethernet device driver
34.Sh SYNOPSIS
35.Cd "device de"
36.Sh DESCRIPTION
37The
38.Nm
39driver provides support for the Ethernet adapters based on the Digital
40Equipment DC21x4x based self-contained Ethernet chips.
41.Pp
9c5a96cc 42It supports the DEC PCI DE435 card, DEC DE450, DEC DE500,
984263bc
MD
43SMC 8432, 9332 and 9334, Cogent EM100FX and EM440TX, Asante,
44ZNYX ZX3xx, and others based on the 21040 and 21041 Ethernet controllers or
45the 21140[A], 21141, 21142 and 21143 Fast 100Mbps Ethernet controllers.
46.Pp
47The
48.Nm
49driver supports the following media types:
984263bc
MD
50.Bl -tag -width xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
51.It autoselect
52Enable autoselection of the media type and options
53.It 10baseT/UTP
54Set 10Mbps operation on the 10baseT port
55.It 10base2/BNC
56Set 10Mbps operation on the BNC port
57.It 10base5/AUI
58Set 10Mbps operation on the AUI port
59.It 100baseTX
60Set 100Mbps (fast ethernet) operation
61.It 100baseFX
62Set 100Mbps operation
63.It 100baseT4
64Set 100Mbps operation (4-pair cat-3 cable)
65.El
66.Pp
67The
68.Nm
69driver supports the following media options:
984263bc
MD
70.Bl -tag -width xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
71.It full-duplex
72Set full duplex operation
73.El
74.Pp
75Note that the media types available depend on the particular card in use.
76Some cards are explicitly programmed to a particular media type by a
77setup utility and are not changeable.
78.Pp
79Use the
80.Xr ifconfig 8
81command an in particular the
82.Fl m
83flag to list the supported media types for your particular card.
84.Pp
85The old
86.Dq ifconfig linkN
87method of configuration is not supported.
88.Sh DIAGNOSTICS
89.Bl -diag
90.It "de%d: waking device from sleep/snooze mode"
91The 21041 and 21140A chips support suspending the operation of the card.
92.It "de%d: error: desired IRQ of %d does not match device's actual IRQ of %d"
93The device probe detected that the board is configured for a different
94interrupt than the one specified in the kernel configuration file.
95.It "de%d: not configured; limit of %d reached or exceeded"
96There is a limit of 32
97.Nm
98devices allowed in a single machine.
99.It "de%d: not configured; 21040 pass 2.0 required (%d.%d found)"
100.It "de%d: not configured; 21140 pass 1.1 required (%d.%d found)"
101Certain revisions of the chipset are not supported by this driver.
