     ex - Ethernet device driver for the Intel EtherExpress Pro/10 and Pro/10+


     To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your
     kernel configuration file:

           device ex

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
     following line in loader.conf(5):



     The ex driver provides support for Ethernet adapters based on the Intel
     i82595 chip.

     The card will be searched for in the I/O address range 0x200 - 0x3a0.  If
     the IRQ will be read from the EEPROM on the card.  For correct operation
     on newer cards the Plug-N-Play support should be disabled.


     The ex driver supports the following Ethernet adapters:

     ·   Intel EtherExpress Pro/10
     ·   Intel EtherExpress Pro/10+
     ·   The Olicom OC2220

     The ex device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 2.2.


     The ex device driver was written by Javier Martín Rueda.  This manual
     page was written by David E. O’Brien.


     Currently the driver does not support multicast.
