EX(4)               FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual (i386)              EX(4)

NAME
     ex - Ethernet device driver for the Intel EtherExpress Pro/10 and Pro/10+

SYNOPSIS
     device ex0 at isa? port? irq ?

DESCRIPTION
     The ex driver provides support for the 16-bit PCI Intel EtherExpress
     Pro/10 and Pro/10+ Ethernet cards based on the Intel i82595 chip.

     If the port start address isn't found, the card will be searched for in
     the I/O address range 0x200 - 0x3a0.  If the IRQ isn't specified, it will
     be read from the EEPROM on the card.  For correct operation on newer
     cards the Plug-N-Play support should be disabled.

DIAGNOSTICS
     ex%d: Intel EtherExpress Pro/10, address %6D, connector %s  The device
     probe found an installed card, and was able to correctly install the
     device driver.

     ex%d: WARNING: board's EEPROM is configured for IRQ %d, using %d  The
     device probe detected that the board is configured for a different
     interrupt than the one specified in the kernel configuration file.

     ex%d: invalid IRQ.  The device probe detected an invalid IRQ setting.

BUGS
     Currently the driver does not support multicast.
