devn-el589.so

Driver for 3Com 589 PCMCIA Ethernet adapters

Syntax:

io-net -d el589 [option[,option ...]] ...

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


Note: Use commas (,) to separate the options (not spaces).

ioport=num
The I/O port of the interface. This is a required parameter and port must be a hex address (e.g. 0x320).
irq=num
The IRQ of the interface. This is a required parameter.
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
nomulticast
Disables the driver from sending or receiving multicast packets. By default, multicast is enabled.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
tmem=name
Name to use for typed memory.
verbose
verbose=num
Be verbose. Specify num for more verbosity (num can be 1-4, the higher the number, the more detailed the output). The output goes to slogger, invoke sloginfo to view.

Description:

The devn-el589.so driver controls 3Com 589 PCMCIA Ethernet adapters.

Examples:

Start io-net using the 589 PCMCIA Ethernet adapter driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d el589 ioport=0x200,irq=7 -p tcpip
ifconfig en0 10.184

Files:

/dev/io-net
The directory where, by default, drivers and protocol modules add entries. For more information, the documentation for io-net.

Caveats:

You must specify the ioport and irq options when using this driver.

The PCMCIA/Cardbus server, devp-pccard, must be started before running this driver.
