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

NAME
     ie - ethernet device driver

SYNOPSIS
     device ie0 at isa? port 0x360 irq 7 iomem 0xd0000

DESCRIPTION
     The ie driver provides support for 8 and 16bit ISA ethernet cards that
     are based on the Intel i82586 chip.  It supports the AT&T Starlan 10 and
     Starlan Fiber, the EN100, the Intel EtherExpress 16, the 3COM 3C507 and
     the RACAL Interlan NI5210.

DIAGNOSTICS
     ie%d: unknown board type code %d  An i82586 chip was found, but the
     driver was unable to determine the actual board type during the probe.

     ie%d: kernel configured maddr %x doesn't match board configured maddr
     %x  The device probe detected a different maddr than the one specified in
     the kernel configuration file.

     ie%d: can't find shared memory  The device probe could not access the
     shared memory to determine its size.

     ie%d: kernel configured msize %d doesn't match board configured msize
     %d  The device probe found a different size for the shared memory than
     the one specified in the kernel configuration file.

     ie%d: kernel configured irq %d doesn't match board configured irq %d  The
     device probe detected that the board is configured for a different
     interrupt than the one specified in the kernel configuration file.

     ie%d: reset  The Intel i82586 had to be reset by the driver.

     ie%d: transceiver problem  The driver has detected a problem with the
     ethernet transceiver.  This is usually due to a loose or broken
     transceiver cable when using an external transceiver.  When you
     experience this problem with an on-card transceiver your card may be
     incorrectly jumpered for to use an external transceiver.  Worst case your
     on-board transceiver may be broken.

     ie%d: TDR detected an open %d clocks away  The driver detected an open
     circuit in the ethernet cable.  Check your coax cable and terminator
     resistors.

     ie%d: TDR detected a short %d clocks away  The driver detected a short
     circuit in the ethernet cable.  Check your coax cable and terminator
     resistors.

     ie%d: TDR returned unknown status %x  The driver got an unknown status
     from the card during the ethernet cable test.

     ie%d: multicast address setup command failed  The card could not be put
     into multicast mode.

     ie%d: configure command failed  The card refused to respond correctly
     during configuration.

     ie%d: individual address setup command failed  The programming of the
     Ethernet (MAC) address failed.

CAVEATS
     The Racal Interlan NI5210 comes in variants with 8 and 16 kbytes of
     shared memory.  It is strongly advisable to use the 16 kbyte variant.
     You can upgrade your 8 kbyte card to 16 kbyte by adding an additional RAM
     chip.

AUTHORS
     The ie device driver was written by Garrett A. Wollman, based on code by
     William F. Jolitz and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories.  3C507 support was
     written by Charles M. Hannum.  This manual page was written by Wilko C.
