DE(4)                  FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                  DE(4)

NAME
     de -- DEC DC21x4x Ethernet device driver

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

           device de

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

           if_de_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The de driver provides support for the Ethernet adapters based on the
     Digital Equipment DC21x4x based self-contained Ethernet and Fast Ethernet
     chips.

     The de driver supports the following media types:

     autoselect       Enable autoselection of the media type and options

     10baseT/UTP      Set 10Mbps operation on the 10baseT port

     10base2/BNC      Set 10Mbps operation on the BNC port

     10base5/AUI      Set 10Mbps operation on the AUI port

     100baseTX        Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation

     100baseFX        Set 100Mbps operation

     100baseT4        Set 100Mbps operation (4-pair cat-3 cable)

     The de driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex      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 set-
     up utility and are not changeable.

     Use the ifconfig(8) command an in particular the -m flag to list the sup-
     ported media types for your particular card.

     The old ``ifconfig linkN'' method of configuration is not supported.

HARDWARE
     Adapters supported by the de driver include:

     +o   Adaptec ANA-6944/TX
     +o   Cogent EM100FX and EM440TX
     +o   Corega FastEther PCI-TX
     +o   D-Link DFE-500TX
     +o   DEC DE435, DEC DE450, and DEC DE500
     +o   ELECOM LD-PCI2T, LD-PCITS
     +o   I-O DATA LA2/T-PCI
     +o   SMC Etherpower 8432, 9332 and 9334
     +o   ZNYX ZX3xx

DIAGNOSTICS
     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 de 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.
