NAME

       axnet_cs - Asix AX88190 chipset PCMCIA Ethernet Driver

SYNOPSIS

       insmod axnet_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [irq_list=i,j,...]

DESCRIPTION

       Axnet_cs  is  a  driver  for  PCMCIA  ethernet  cards based on the Asix
       AX88190 chipset.  These cards are mostly  NE2000  compatible  but  have
       several  bugs  that  are  sufficiently  tricky  to  work  around that a
       separate driver was deemed necessary.  When this driver is bound  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).

       The  driver uses the N-Way autonegotiating transceiver to negotiate the
       speed and duplex of the network link.  If the  link  partner  does  not
       support  negotiation,  only  the link speed is detected.  To monitor or
       override the autonegotiation process, see mii-tool(8).

PARAMETERS

       pc_debug=n
              Selects the PCMCIA debugging  level.   This  parameter  is  only
              available  if  the module is compiled with debugging enabled.  A
              non-zero value enables debugging.

       irq_list=i,j,...
              Specifies the set of interrupts that may be  allocated  by  this
              driver.

DIAGNOSTICS

       axnet_cs: this is not an AX88190 card!
              Indicates  that this card is probably a normal NE2000 compatible
              card, which requires the pcnet_cs driver.

       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.
