devn-wd.so

Driver for the SMC 8003/8013 Ethernet controller and compatibles

Syntax:

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

Runs on:

Neutrino

Options:


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

iftype
Interface type (from <net/if_types.h>). The default is IFT_ETHER.
iorange=0xXXXXXXXX
The I/O base address. The 0xXXXXXXXX parameter must be a hex address (e.g. 0x320). The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
irq=num
IRQ of the interface. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
lan=num
LAN number. The default is 0.
mac=XXXXXXXXXXXX
MAC address of the controller. The default is automatically detected on supported hardware.
media=num
Media type (from <hw/nicinfo.h>). The default is NIC_MEDIA_802_3.
mru=num
Maximum receive unit. The default is 1514.
nomulticast
Disables the driver from sending or receiving multicast packets. By default, multicast is enabled.
priority=N
Priority of the driver-event thread. The default is 21.
promiscuous
Enable promiscuous mode. The default is off.
uptype=name
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.

Description:

The devn-wd.so driver controls the SMC 8003/8013 Ethernet controller and compatibles.

Examples:

Start io-net using the SMC 8003/8013 driver and the full TCP/IP stack:

io-net -d wd iorange=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.
