SGE(4)		       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual			SGE(4)

NAME
     sge -- Silicon Integrated Systems SiS190/191 Fast/Gigabit Ethernet	driver

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

	   device miibus
	   device sge

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

	   if_sge="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The sge device driver provides support for	SiS190 Fast Ethernet con-
     trollers and SiS191 Fast/Gigabit Ethernet controllers.

     All LOMs supported	by the sge driver have TCP/UDP/IP checksum offload for
     transmit and receive, TCP segmentation offload (TSO), hardware VLAN tag
     stripping/insertion features.  Due	to lack	of documentation Wake On Lan
     (WOL), Jumbo frame	and an interrupt moderation mechanism are not sup-
     ported yet.

     The sge 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.

     100baseTX	  Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation.

     1000baseTX	  Set 1000baseTX operation over	twisted	pair.

     The sge 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).

HARDWARE
     The sge device driver provides support for	the following Ethernet con-
     trollers:

     +o	 SiS190	Fast Ethernet controller
     +o	 SiS191	Fast/Gigabit Ethernet controller
