       tulip-diag  -  EEPROM setup and diagnostic program for ethernet cards based on the Digital
       DC21x4* chip.


       tulip-diag [options]


       tulip-diag is a program that you can use to diagnose problems with ethernet cards based on
       Digital   DC21x4*   chips.   This   includes   the  following  chips:  Digital  and  Intel
       21040/041/140/142/143/145 and  others  from  Lite-On,  LinkSys,  Macronix,  ASIX,  Compex,
       STmicro, ADMtek, Davicom and Xircom.


       These  programs  follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long options starting with
       two dashes (`-').  A summary of options is included below.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -V, --version
              Show version of program.

       -v, --verbose
              Verbose mode.

       -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,  HomePNA  and

       -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, if you do not know
              what you do!

       -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 tulip-diag with the  options
              '-t -1'.
