devn-i82544.so

Driver for Intel 82540, 82544, 82545, 82546, and 82547 Gigabit Ethernet LAN adapters

Syntax:

io-net -d i82544 [option[,option ...]] ... &

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


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

did
Only detect devices with this specific PCI Device ID. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
duplex=0|1
Half (0) or full (1) duplex mode. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware. If you specify duplex, specify speed as well; if duplex alone is specified, it is ignored and both speed and duplex are auto-negotiated.
flowcontrol=0|1
Disable (0) or enable (1) hardware flow control.
irq=N
IRQ of the interface. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
mtu=X
Maximum transmission unit. The default (1514) is automatically detected on supported hardware.
nomulticast
Disable the driver from sending or receiving multicast packets. By default, multicast is enabled.
pci
Only detect devices at this specific PCI index.
priority=X
Priority of the driver's event-handler thread. The default is 21.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
receive=num
Set the number of receive descriptors. The default is 64.
speed=10|100|1000
Media data rate (10Mbit, 100Mbit, or Gigabit operation). The default is automatically detected on supported hardware. If you specify speed, specify duplex as well; if speed alone is specified, the specified speed is correctly set, but duplex defaults to half (0).
transmit=N
Set the number of transmit descriptors. The default is 128.
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.
vid
Only detect devices with this specific PCI Vendor ID.

Description:

The devn-i82544.so driver manages the Intel 82540, 82544, 82545, 82546, and 82547 Gigabit Ethernet LAN adapters.

Examples:

Start io-net using the devn-i82544.so driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d i82544 -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.
