AXGE(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		       AXGE(4)

NAME
     axge -- ASIX Electronics AX88178A/AX88179 USB Gigabit Ethernet driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device xhci
	   device ehci
	   device uhci
	   device ohci
	   device usb
	   device miibus
	   device axge

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   if_axge_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The axge driver provides support for USB Gigabit Ethernet adapters	based
     on	the ASIX Electronics AX88179 USB 3.0 and AX88178A USB 2.0 chipsets.

     The AX88179 and AX88178A contain a	10/100/1000 Ethernet MAC with a	GMII
     interface for interfacing with the	Gigabit	Ethernet PHY.

     These devices will	operate	with both USB 1.x and USB 2.0 controllers, and
     the AX88179 will operate with USB 3.0 controllers.	 Packets are received
     and transmitted over separate USB bulk transfer endpoints.

     The axge driver supports the following media types:

     autoselect	  Enable autoselection of the media type and options.  The
		  user can manually override the autoselected mode by adding
		  media	options	to rc.conf(5).

     10baseT/UTP  Set 10Mbps operation.	 The ifconfig(8) mediaopt option can
		  also be used to select either	full-duplex or half-duplex
		  modes.

     100baseTX	  Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation.  The ifconfig(8)
		  mediaopt option can also be used to select either
		  full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

     1000baseT	  Set 1000Mbps (Gigabit	Ethernet) operation (AX88178 only).
		  The ifconfig(8) mediaopt option can also be used to select
		  either full-duplex or	half-duplex modes.

     The axge driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex  Force	full duplex operation.

     half-duplex  Force	half duplex operation.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).
