NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     bce - Broadcom BCM4401 Ethernet device driver

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     bce* at pci? dev ? function ?

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The bce provides support for  the  Broadcom  BCM4401  10/100
Ethernet card.
     Other cards from the 440x series may also be supported.

     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 bce driver places the
card into autoselect
 mode.

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

     bce%d: failed to enable memory mapping!  A fatal initialization error has
     occurred.

     bce%d:  unable to find mem space  A fatal initialization error has occurred.


     bce%d: unable to wake up from power state D%d  The card  has
lost its configuration
 data during power save mode.

     bce%d:  couldn't map interrupt  A fatal initialization error
has occurred.

     bce%d: couldn't establish interrupt  A fatal  initialization
error has occurred.


     bce%d:  unable  to alloc space for ring descriptors, error =
%d  A fatal
     initialization error has occurred.

     bce%d: unable to map DMA buffers, error = %d  A  fatal  initialization error
 has occurred.

     bce%d:  unable  to  create ring DMA map, error = %d  A fatal
initialization
     error has occurred.

     bce%d: unable to create tx DMA map, error = %d  A fatal initialization
     error has occurred.

     bce%d: unable to create rx DMA map, error = %d  A fatal initialization
     error has occurred.

     bce%d: Tx packet consumes too many DMA segments, dropping...
An outgoing
     packet didn't fit in the allocated number of segments.

     bce%d:  unable  to  load Tx buffer, error = %d  Short on resources when
     transmitting a packet, it will be retried later.

     bce%d: device timeout  The device has stopped responding  to
the network
     or there is a problem with the network connection (cable).

     bce%d:  transmit  fifo underflow  An error occurred, the interface will be
     reinitialized.

     bce%d: receive fifo overflow  An error occurred, the  interface will be
     reinitialized.

     bce%d:  receive descriptor underflow  An error occurred, the
interface
     will be reinitialized.

     bce%d: descriptor protocol error  An error occurred, the interface will
     be reinitialized.

     bce%d:  data error  An error occurred, the interface will be
reinitialized.


     bce%d: descriptor error  An error  occurred,  the  interface
will be reinitialized.


     bce%d:  general  purpose timeout  An error occurred, the interface will be
     reinitialized.

     bce%d: unable to allocate or map rx(%d)  mbuf,  error  =  %d
Failed to initialize
 the interface.

     bce%d:  timed  out writing pkt filter ctl  Failed to add MAC
address.

     bce%d: timed out disabling ethernet mac  A problem  occurred
when resetting
 the interface.

     bce%d:  receive  dma  did not go idle after error  A problem
occurred when
     resetting the interface.

     bce%d: timed out resetting ethernet mac  A problem  occurred
when resetting
 the interface.

     bce%d:  while  resetting core, reject did not set  A problem
occurred when
     resetting the interface.

     bce%d: while resetting core, busy did not clear   A  problem
occurred when
     resetting the interface.

     bce%d:  PHY  read timed out reading phy %d, reg %d, val = %x
An error occurred
 when reading a PHY register on the MII.

     bce%d: PHY read timed out writing phy %d, reg %d, val  =  %x
An error occurred
 when writing a PHY register on the MII.
