NAME

     ie — Ethernet device driver

SYNOPSIS

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

           device ie

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

           if_ie_load="YES"

     In /boot/device.hints:
     hint.ie.0.at="isa"
     hint.ie.0.port="0x300"
     hint.ie.0.irq="5"
     hint.ie.0.maddr="0xd0000"

HARDWARE

     The ie driver provides supports the following 8 and 16bit ISA Ethernet cards that are based
     on the Intel i82586 chip:

     ·   3COM 3C507
     ·   AT&T EN100
     ·   AT&T Starlan 10
     ·   AT&T Starlan Fiber
     ·   Intel EtherExpress 16
     ·   RACAL Interlan NI5210

DIAGNOSTICS

     ie%d: unknown board type code %d  An i82586 chip was found, but the driver was unable to
     determine the actual board type during the probe.

     ie%d: kernel configured maddr %x doesn't match board configured maddr %x  The device probe
     detected a different maddr than the one specified in the kernel configuration file.

     ie%d: can't find shared memory  The device probe could not access the shared memory to
     determine its size.

     ie%d: kernel configured msize %d doesn't match board configured msize %d  The device probe
     found a different size for the shared memory than the one specified in the kernel
     configuration file.

     ie%d: kernel configured irq %d doesn't match board configured irq %d  The device probe
     detected that the board is configured for a different interrupt than the one specified in
     the kernel configuration file.

     ie%d: reset  The Intel i82586 had to be reset by the driver.

     ie%d: transceiver problem  The driver has detected a problem with the Ethernet transceiver.
     This is usually due to a loose or broken transceiver cable when using an external
     transceiver.  When you experience this problem with an on-card transceiver your card may be
     incorrectly jumpered for to use an external transceiver.  Worst case your on-board
     transceiver may be broken.

     ie%d: TDR detected an open %d clocks away  The driver detected an open circuit in the
     Ethernet cable.  Check your coax cable and terminator resistors.

     ie%d: TDR detected a short %d clocks away  The driver detected a short circuit in the
     Ethernet cable.  Check your coax cable and terminator resistors.

     ie%d: TDR returned unknown status %x  The driver got an unknown status from the card during
     the Ethernet cable test.

     ie%d: multicast address setup command failed  The card could not be put into multicast mode.

     ie%d: configure command failed  The card refused to respond correctly during configuration.

     ie%d: individual address setup command failed  The programming of the Ethernet (MAC) address
     failed.

AUTHORS

     The ie device driver was written by Garrett A. Wollman, based on code by William F. Jolitz
     and Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories.  3C507 support was written by Charles M. Hannum.  This
     manual page was written by Wilko C. Bulte.

CAVEATS

     The Racal Interlan NI5210 comes in variants with 8 and 16 kbytes of shared memory.  It is
     strongly advisable to use the 16 kbyte variant.  You can upgrade your 8 kbyte card to 16
     kbyte by adding an additional RAM chip.
