     de — DEC DC21x4x Ethernet device driver

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

	   device de

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


     The de driver provides support for the Ethernet adapters based on the
     Digital Equipment DC21x4x based self-contained Ethernet and Fast Ethernet

     The de driver supports the following media types:

     autoselect	      Enable autoselection of the media type and options

     10baseT/UTP      Set 10Mbps operation on the 10baseT port

     10base2/BNC      Set 10Mbps operation on the BNC port

     10base5/AUI      Set 10Mbps operation on the AUI port

     100baseTX	      Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation

     100baseFX	      Set 100Mbps operation

     100baseT4	      Set 100Mbps operation (4-pair cat-3 cable)

     The de driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex      Set full duplex operation

     Note that the media types available depend on the particular card in use.
     Some cards are explicitly programmed to a particular media type by a set‐
     up utility and are not changeable.

     Use the ifconfig(8) command and in particular the -m flag to list the
     supported media types for your particular card.

     The old “ifconfig linkN” method of configuration is not supported.

     Adapters supported by the de driver include:

     ·	 Adaptec ANA-6944/TX
     ·	 Cogent EM100FX and EM440TX
     ·	 Corega FastEther PCI-TX
     ·	 D-Link DFE-500TX
     ·	 DEC DE435, DEC DE450, and DEC DE500
     ·	 I-O DATA LA2/T-PCI
     ·	 SMC Etherpower 8432, 9332 and 9334
     ·	 ZNYX ZX3xx

     de%d: waking device from sleep/snooze mode	 The 21041 and 21140A chips
     support suspending the operation of the card.

     de%d: error: desired IRQ of %d does not match device's actual IRQ of %d
     The device probe detected that the board is configured for a different
     interrupt than the one specified in the kernel configuration file.

     de%d: not configured; limit of %d reached or exceeded  There is a limit
     of 32 de devices allowed in a single machine.

     de%d: not configured; 21040 pass 2.0 required (%d.%d found)
     de%d: not configured; 21140 pass 1.1 required (%d.%d found)  Certain
     revisions of the chipset are not supported by this driver.

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

     The de device driver was written by Matt Thomas.  This manual page was
     written by David E. O'Brien.
