MOS(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual			MOS(4)

NAME
     mos -- Moschip MCS7730/MCS7830/MCS7832 USB	Ethernet driver

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

	   device uhci
	   device ohci
	   device ehci
	   device usb
	   device miibus
	   device mos

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

	   if_mos_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The mos driver provides support for USB Ethernet adapters based on	the
     Moschip MCS7730/MCS7830/MCS7832 chipset.

     The adapters that contain the Moschip MCS7730/MCS7830/MCS7832 chipset
     will operate at 100Base-TX	and full-duplex.

     The Moschip contains a 10/100 Ethernet MAC	with MII interface and is
     designed to work with both	Ethernet and HomePNA transceivers.  Although
     designed to interface with	100Mbps	peripherals, this only works with USB
     2.0. The existing USB 1.0 standard	specifies a maximum transfer speed of
     12Mbps.  USB 1.0 Users should therefore not expect	to actually achieve
     100Mbps speeds with these devices.

     The Moschip supports a 64-bit multicast hash table, single	perfect	filter
     entry for the station address and promiscuous mode.  Packets are received
     and transmitted over separate USB bulk transfer endpoints.

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

HARDWARE
     Adapters supported	by the mos driver include:
