DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The fxp device driver supports the  Intel  EtherExpress  100
family of Ethernet
  cards  based  on  various  revisions  of  the i82557,
i82558, i82559,
     i82550, i82551, and i82562 chipsets.  These come in  several
different varieties,
 including dual-port cards, and as built-in Ethernet
solutions on
     certain motherboards.  This includes, among others, the following models:

           Intel EtherExpress PRO/100 PCI
           Intel EtherExpress PRO/100B PCI
           Intel EtherExpress PRO/100+ PCI
           Intel EtherExpress PRO/100 Dual-Port PCI
           Intel PRO/100 CardBus II PC Card
           Intel PRO/100 VE
           Intel PRO/100 VM
           Intel PRO/100 M

     Other  models  of  Intel  network cards are supported by the
ie(4), iy(4),
     and em(4) drivers.  This list is not exhaustive.  In particular, the fxp
     driver  should support any card by any manufacturer which is
based on one
     of the aforementioned chipsets.

     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

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

           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

     These  cards also come with a variety of PHYs.  Models exist
with PHYs
     supported by both the inphy(4) and nsphy(4) drivers.
