NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       ee - Intel (82558/82559) PCI 10/100 Ethernet

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       config_driver ee

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  ee interface supports the Intel 82558 and 82559-based
       HP adapters (including the DE60x line of adapters).  These
       PCI  bus  adapters support standard 10/100 Ethernet operation,
 and  provide  equivalent  service  compared  to  the
       DE500-BA  adapters (IEEE 802.3u Autonegotiation, full/half
       duplex, 10/100 Mbps). In addition  to  the  standard  features,
 our adapters support a hardware feature called parallel
 detection. This feature detects speed  (10/100)  and
       mode (full/half duplex) automatically when connecting to a
       repeater/switch that does NOT perform IEEE 802.3u  Autonegotiation.

       By  default,  the  driver uses Autonegotiation mode.  This
       mode either connects  to  the  remote  partner  with  IEEE
       802.3u  Autonegotiation  or  resolves  the  speed and mode
       using parallel detection. The  adapters  are  designed  to
       automatically  connect to all network configurations without
 manual intervention.  However, if manual  intervention
       is  required,  lan_config  operations  are  supported (see
       lan_config(8) for more information). If you want  to  preserve
   your  lan_config command information across system
       restarts, edit the /etc/inet.local file  and  include  the
       appropriate  commands.  This  information also remains the
       same through system version updates.

       If you manually set the speed by  using  the  ifconfig  or
       lan_config commands, autonegotiation is automatically disabled.
 If you then want  to  enable  autonegotiation  (for
       example on interface ee0), use the following command:

       # lan_config -iee0 -a1

       This driver does NOT require new console firmware to operate
 in a runtime only manner. Tru64 UNIX does not use console
  variables  to  define media, mode, or speed. Booting
       over a network requires SRM firmware Version 5.5 or  later
       (on most platforms).

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  following  diagnostic error messages contain relevant
       information provided by the ee interface, and are  printed
       on  the  console.   Each  message  begins with the adapter
       identification, including the unit number of the  adapter.
       The ee driver found a system that has not defined cachelinesize
 in the PCI configuration header.  This is an informational
  message  only,  and the driver correctly defines
       the  cachelinesize  parameter.   Not  enough  free  memory
       exists to run the driver.  The EEPROM on the board did not
       pass the checksum test.  The board indicated in this  message
 is unusable.  The device did not pass self test.  The
       diagnostic test that failed follows immediately after this
       message.  The board indicated in this message is unusable.
