DESCRIPTION

       rtl8139-diag is a program that you can use to  diagnose  problems  with
       ethernet cards based on the Realtek 8129 oder 8139 chip series.

       -q, --quiet
              Be very unverbose.

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

       -a, --show_all_registers
              Print all registers.

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

       -E, --emergency-rewrite
              Re-write a corrupted EEPROM.

       -p, --base-address <port>
              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, Autosense and Autonegotiate.

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

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

       -R, --reset
              Reset the transceiver.

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

       -w, --write-EEPROM <values>
              Write to the EEPROMS with the specified values. Do not use this,

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

       -t, --chip-type <card>
              Explicitly  set  the  chip.  To  get  all  valid  numbers,   run
