devn-rtl8150.so

Driver for SMC2208 USB/Ethernet adapters

Syntax:

io-net -d rtl8150 [option[,option ...]] ...

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


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

busnum=0xXX
The USB bus number.
devnum=0xXX
The USB device number.
did=0xXXXX
The USB device ID.
duplex=0|1
Half (0) or full (1) duplex mode.
iftype=num
The interface type (from <net/if_types.h>). The default is IFT_ETHER.
lan=num
The LAN number. The default is 0.
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
The MAC address of the adapter. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
media=num
The media type (from <hw/nicinfo.h>). The default is NIC_MEDIA_802_3.
mru=num
The maximum receive unit. The default is 1514.
mtu=X
The maximum transmission unit. The default (1514) is automatically detected on supported hardware.
path=name
The device name. The default is /dev/usbenet0.
phy=num
The address of the connected PHY device.
priority=N
The priority of the driver-event thread. The default is 21.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
receive=num
Set the number of receive descriptors. The default is 5.
speed=10|100
The media data rate (10Mbit or 100Mbit operation). The default is automatically detected on supported hardware. If you specify speed, specify duplex as well; if you specify the speed alone, the speed is correctly set, but duplex defaults to half (0).
transmit=num
Set the number of tx descriptors. The default is 10.
uptype=name
The interface name. The default is "en".
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 default is 0. The output goes to slogger; invoke sloginfo to view.
vid=0xXXXX
The USB vendor ID of the adapter. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
wait=num
Wait num seconds for the USB stack. The default is 60 seconds.

Description:

The devn-rtl8150.so driver controls SMC2208 USB/Ethernet adapters.

Examples:

Start io-net using the SMC2208 USB/Ethernet adapter driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -drtl8150 verbose -ptcpip &
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.
