NAME

       eepro100-diag   -   EEPROM  setup  and  diagnostic  program  for  Intel
       EtherExpress Pro100B, and EEPro PCI 10+ ethernet cards.

SYNOPSIS

       eepro100-diag [options]

DESCRIPTION

       eepro100-diag is a program that you can use to diagnose  problems  with
       ethernet  cards  based  the "Speedo3" chip series: the i82557, ’558 and
       ’559.  These chips are used on the EtherExpress Pro100B, and EEPro  PCI
       10+.

OPTIONS

              Be very unverbose.

       -# <cardnum>, --card_num <cardnum>
              Use card number <cardnum>.

       -a, --show_all_registers
              Print all registers.

       -e, --show-eeprom
              Dump EEPROM contents to stdout.

              Specify port to use.

       -A, --Advertise <mediaype>
              Advertise  media  type.  Valid  Options are: 10baseT, 100baseT4,
              100baseTx, 100baseTx-FD, 100baseTx-HD, 10baseT-FD and  10baseHD.

       -F, --new-interface <interface>
              Interface number. Options that make sense are: 10baseT, 10base2,
              AUI,   100baseTx,   10baseT-FDX,    100baseTx-FDX,    100baseT4,
              100baseFx, 100baseFx-FDX, MII and Autosense.

       -H, --new-hwaddress <address>
              Set card to a new hardware address.

       -m, --show-mii
              Dump MII management registers.

       -T, --test
              Do register and SRAM test.

       -w, --write-EEPROM <values>
              Write to the EEPROMS with the specified values. Do not use this,
              if you do not know what you do!

       -f, --force-detection
              Try to identify the card, even if it is active.
