     The Pegasus family	of chipsets contain a 10/100 Ethernet MAC with an MII
     interface and are designed	to work	with both Ethernet and HomePNA trans-
     ceivers.  Although	the chipsets are designed to interface with 100Mbps
     peripherals, the USB 1.x standards	specify	a maximum transfer speed of
     12Mbps.  Users should therefore not expect	to actually achieve 100Mbps
     speeds with these devices.

     The Pegasus chipsets support a 64-bit multicast hash table, single	per-
     fect filter entry for the station address and promiscuous mode.  Packets
     are received and transmitted over separate	USB bulk transfer endpoints.

     The aue 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 the	appropriate hostname.if(5) file.

     10baseT	 Set 10Mbps operation.	The mediaopt option can	also be	used
		 to enable full-duplex operation.  Not specifying full duplex
		 implies half-duplex mode.

     100baseTX	 Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation.	 The mediaopt option
		 can also be used to enable full-duplex	operation.  Not	speci-
		 fying full duplex implies half-duplex mode.

     The aue driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex
		 Force full duplex operation.  The interface will operate in
		 half duplex mode if this media	option is not specified.

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

DIAGNOSTICS
     aue0: watchdog timeout  A packet was queued for transmission and a	trans-
     mit command was issued, however the device	failed to acknowledge the
     transmission before a timeout expired.

     aue0: no memory for rx list  The driver failed to allocate	an mbuf	for
     the receiver ring.

HISTORY
     The aue device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.0.  OpenBSD support was
     added in OpenBSD 2.7.

AUTHORS
     The aue driver was	written	by Bill	Paul <wpaul@ee.columbia.edu> and
     ported to OpenBSD by Aaron	Campbell <aaron@openbsd.org>.
