lge - Level 1 LXT1001 NetCellerator PCI Gigabit Ethernet
lge* at pci? dev ? function ?
The lge driver provides support for various NICs based on
the Level 1
LXT1001 NetCellerator Gigabit Ethernet controller chip, including the
+o SMC TigerCard 1000 (SMC9462SX)
+o D-Link DGE-500SX
These NICs are capable of 1000Mbps speeds over fiber optic
LXT1001 also supports a GMII port for use with 10/100/1000
however there aren't currently any NICs on the market that
use this feature.
The LXT1001 supports TCP/IP checksum offload for receive and
filtering as well as a 64-bit multicast hash filter. It also supports
jumbo frames, which can be configured via the interface MTU
an MTU larger than 1500 bytes with the ifconfig(8)
the adapter to receive and transmit jumbo frames.
frames can greatly improve performance for certain tasks,
such as file
transfers and data streaming.
The lge driver supports the following media types:
autoselect Enable autoselection of the media type and options. The user
can manually override the autoselected mode
by adding media
options to the appropriate hostname.if(5)
1000baseSX Set 1000baseSX operation over fiber optic cable. Both full-
duplex and half-duplex modes are supported.
The lge driver supports the following media options:
full-duplex Force full duplex operation.
half-duplex Force half duplex operation.
For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).
