     cue — CATC USB-EL1210A USB Ethernet driver


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

           device uhci
           device ohci
           device usb
           device miibus
           device uether
           device cue

     Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the following line in



     The cue driver provides support for USB Ethernet adapters based on the Computer Access
     Technology Corporation's USB-EL1210A chipset.

     The USB-EL1210A supports a 512-bit multicast hash filter, single perfect filter entry for
     the station address and promiscuous mode.  Packets are received and transmitted over
     separate USB bulk transfer endpoints.

     The CATC chipset supports only 10Mbps half-duplex mode, hence there are no ifmedia(4) modes
     to select.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).


     The cue driver supports CATC USB-EL1210A based USB Ethernet adapters including:

        Belkin F5U011/F5U111
        CATC Netmate
        CATC Netmate II
        SmartBridges SmartLink


     cue%d: watchdog timeout  A packet was queued for transmission and a transmit command was
     issued, however the device failed to acknowledge the transmission before a timeout expired.

     cue%d: no memory for rx list  The driver failed to allocate an mbuf for the receiver ring.


     arp(4), netintro(4), ng_ether(4), ifconfig(8)


     The cue device driver first appeared in FreeBSD 4.0.
