NAME
     ure -- RealTek RTL8152/RTL8153 USB	to Ethernet controller driver

SYNOPSIS
     To	compile	this driver into the kernel, place the following lines in your
     kernel configuration file:

	   device uhci
	   device ohci
	   device usb
	   device miibus
	   device uether
	   device ure

     Alternatively, to load the	driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):

	   if_ure_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION
     The ure driver provides support for USB Ethernet adapters based on	the
     RealTek RealTek RTL8152 and RTL8153 USB Ethernet controllers.

     NICs based	on the RTL8152 are capable of 10 and 100Mbps speeds.  NICs
     based on the RTL8153 are capable of 10, 100 and 1000Mbps operation.

     The ure driver supports the following media types:

     autoselect	  Enable auto selection	of the media type and options.	The
		  user can manually override the auto selected mode by adding
		  media	options	to the /etc/rc.conf file.

     10baseT/UTP  Set 10Mbps operation.	 The mediaopt option can also be used
		  to select either full-duplex or half-duplex modes.

     100baseTX	  Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation.  The mediaopt option
		  can also be used to select either full-duplex	or half-duplex
		  modes.

     1000baseTX	  Set 1000baseTX operation over	twisted	pair.  The RealTek
		  gigE chips support 1000Mbps in full-duplex mode only.

     The ure driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex  Force	full duplex operation.

     half-duplex  Force	half duplex operation.

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