inphy* at mii?
iophy* at mii?
nsphy* at mii?

DESCRIPTION

The fxp device driver supports the Intel EtherExpress 100 family of Ethernet cards based on various revisions of the i82557, i82558, i82559, i82559S, i82550, i82551, and i82562 chipsets, including the following:
The following media types and options (as given to ifconfig(8)) are supported:
 
 
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 mode.
 
 
media 100baseTX mediaopt half-duplex
Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation and force half-duplex mode.
 
 
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 fxp driver places the card into autoselect mode.

FILES

Some devices are able to do interrupt coalescing but it requires firmware updating. The following firmware files are potentially loaded on demand when an interface is brought up:
/etc/firmware/fxp-d101a
 
/etc/firmware/fxp-d101b0
 
/etc/firmware/fxp-d101ma
 
/etc/firmware/fxp-d101s
 
/etc/firmware/fxp-d102
 
/etc/firmware/fxp-d102c
 
/etc/firmware/fxp-d102e
 
If a file is missing, the driver attempts to operate anyway.
