devn-lance.so

Driver for AMD LANCE (AMD-79c96x) compatible Ethernet adapters

Syntax:

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

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


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

ioport=num
Set the I/O port of interface to num. The num parameter must be a hex address (e.g. 0x320). The default is automatically detected on supported hardware (but see caution below).
irq=num
Set the IRQ of interface to num. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware (but see caution below).
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
nomulticast
Disable multicast support.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
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-lance.so driver controls AMD LANCE (AMD-79c96x) compatible Ethernet adapters.


Caution: This driver cannot always detect the correct irq and ioport options, especially for ISA devices. To be sure, always specify irq and ioport when using this driver.

Examples:

Start io-net using the AMD LANCE driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d lance ioport=0x320,irq=11 -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.
