3c589_cs - 3Com 3c589 Etherlink III device driver
insmod 3c589_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [if_port=n] [irq_list=i,j,...]
3c589_cs is the low-level Card Services driver for the 3Com 3c589
PCMCIA ethernet adapter and 3Com 3c562/3c563 combo cards. When this
driver is attached to a card, it allocates the next available ethernet
device (eth0..eth#). This device name will be reported in the kernel
log file, and passed on to cardmgr(8).
With the default transceiver setting, the driver will attempt to
continuously autodetect the transceiver type (10base2 or 10baseT).
There should normally only be a one or two second lag before the
correct transceiver is selected. On particularly noisy or busy
networks, it is possible for the detection logic to incorrectly toggle
the transceiver type. If this becomes a problem, it may be necessary
to explicitly select the interface type when the module is loaded or
with the ifport command.
Selects the PCMCIA debugging level. This parameter is only
available if the module is compiled with debugging enabled. A
non-zero value enables debugging.
Selects the transceiver type. 0 is autodetect (10baseT or
10base2), 1 is 10baseT (twisted pair), 2 is 10base2 (BNC, or
thin net). and 3 is AUI (thick ethernet). The default is 0
Specifies the set of interrupts that may be allocated by this
eth#: interrupt(s) dropped!
Indicates that the driver did not receive an interrupt
notification for some reason. The driver will poll the card
(with a significant performance penalty) if the problem
persists. The most likely cause is an interrupt conflict and/or
host bridge configuration problem.
