EX(4)		       BSD/i386	Kernel Interfaces Manual		 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 de-
     vice driver.

     ex%d: WARNING: board's EEPROM is configured for IRQ %d, using %d  The de-
     vice probe	detected that the board	is configured for a different inter-
     rupt 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.
