TX(4)		     FreeBSD/i386 Kernel Interfaces Manual		 TX(4)

NAME
     tx	-- SMC 83c17x Fast Ethernet device driver

SYNOPSIS
     device miibus
     device tx

DESCRIPTION
     The tx driver provides support for	the Ethernet adapters based on the SMC
     83c17x (EPIC) chips.  These are mostly SMC	9432 series cards.

     The tx driver supports the	following media	types (depending on card's
     capabilities):

     autoselect	      Enable autonegotiation (default)

     100baseFX	      Set 100Mbps (fast	ethernet) fiber	optic operation

     100baseTX	      Set 100Mbps (fast	ethernet) twisted pair operation

     10baseT/UTP      Set 10Mbps on 10baseT port

     10base2/BNC      Set 10Mbps on 10base2 port

     The tx driver supports the	following media	options:

     full-duplex      Set full-duplex operation

     Driver supports oversized ethernet	packets	(up to 1600 bytes).  Refer to
     the ifconfig(8) man page on setting the interface's MTU.

     The old ``ifconfig	tx0 linkN'' method of configuration is not supported.

   VLAN	(IEEE 802.1Q) support
     The tx driver supports the	VLAN operation (using vlan(4) inteface)	with-
     out decreasing the	MTU on the vlan(4) interfaces.

DIAGNOSTICS
     tx%d: device timeout %d packets  The device stops responding.  Device and
     driver reset follows this error.

     tx%d: PCI fatal error occured (%s)	 One of	following errors occured: PCI
     Target Abort, PCI Master Abort, Data Parity Error or Address Parity
     Error.  Device and	driver reset follows this error.

     tx%d: cannot allocate mbuf	header/cluster	Cannot allocate	memory for
     received packet.  Packet thrown away.

     tx%d: can't stop %s DMA  While reseting, driver failed to stop device
     correctly.

BUGS
     The multicast packets filtering is	not supported.
