     ef - 3Com Fast EtherLink ISA (3c515) 10/100 Ethernet device

     ef* at isapnp?
     nsphy* at mii?

     The ef device driver supports the 3Com Fast EtherLink ISA family of
     Ethernet cards, and embedded controllers based on the 3Com ``corkscrew''
     EtherLink chips.

     The following media types and options (as given to ifconfig(8)) are

	   media autoselect
		Enable autoselection of the media type and options (default).

	   media 100baseTX mediaopt full-duplex
		Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation and force full-duplex

	   media 100baseTX mediaopt half-duplex
		Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation and force half-duplex

	   media 10baseT mediaopt full-duplex
		Set 10Mbps operation and force full-duplex.

	   media 10baseT mediaopt half-duplex
		Set 10Mbps operation and force half-duplex.

     If no media options are present, the ef driver places the card into
     autoselect mode.

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