NAME ie — Ethernet device driver SYNOPSIS To compile this driver into the kernel, place the following line in your kernel configura‐ tion 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 configura‐ tion 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 trans‐ ceiver. 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 trans‐ ceiver may be broken. ie%d: TDR detected an open %d clocks away The driver detected an open circuit in the Ether‐ net 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 Ether‐ net 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. SEE ALSO arp(4), netintro(4), ng_ether(4), ifconfig(8) 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.BSD July 16, 2005 BSD
