NAME
gsip -- National Semiconductor DP83820 Gigabit Ethernet driver SYNOPSIS
gsip* at pci? dev ? function ? Configuration of PHYs may also be necessary. See mii(4). DESCRIPTION
The gsip device driver supports Gigabit Ethernet interfaces based on the National Semiconductor DP83820 Gigabit Ethernet chips. The National Semiconductor DP83820 is found on NetGear GA-622, Asante FriendlyNet GigaNIX, D-Link DGE-500T, SMC 9452TX and 9462TX, Accton EN1407-T, Planex GN-1000TE, ARK SOHO GA2000T and GA2500T, and other low-cost Gigabit Ethernet cards. It uses an external PHY or an external 10-bit interface. The DP83820 supports VLAN tag insertion/removal in hardware. The gsip driver supports this feature of the chip. The DP83820 supports IPv4/TCP/UDP checksumming in hardware. The gsip driver supports this feature of the chip. See ifconfig(8) for informa- tion on how to enable this feature. The DP83820 chip is a close relative of the DP83815 10/100 Ethernet chip, which is supported by the sip(4) driver, hence the gsip name. SEE ALSO
arp(4), ifmedia(4), mii(4), netintro(4), pci(4), vlan(4), ifconfig(8) HISTORY
The gsip driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.6. AUTHORS
The gsip driver was written by Jason R. Thorpe <thorpej@NetBSD.org>. BUGS
The gsip driver does not support the 10-bit interface, which is required in order to support fiber-optic media. BSD

NAME
stge -- Sundance/Tamarack TC9021 Gigabit Ethernet driver SYNOPSIS
stge* at pci? dev ? function ? Configuration of PHYs or Ten-bit interfaces may also be necessary. See mii(4). DESCRIPTION
The stge device driver supports the Sundance/Tamarack TC9021 Gigabit Ethernet chip. The Sundance/Tamarack TC9021 is found on the D-Link DGE-550T, and the Antares Microsystems Gigabit Ethernet board. It uses an external PHY or an external 10-bit interface. The TC9021 supports IPv4/TCP/UDP checksumming in hardware. The stge driver supports this feature of the chip. See ifconfig(8) for informa- tion on how to enable this feature. SEE ALSO
arp(4), ifmedia(4), mii(4), netintro(4), pci(4), ifconfig(8) HISTORY
The stge driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.6. AUTHORS
The stge driver was written by Jason R. Thorpe <thorpej@NetBSD.org>. BUGS
The stge driver does not support the VLAN tag insertion/removal feature of the TC9021 chip. This is primarily because the TC9021's VLAN do not have a useful programming interface. The stge driver does not yet support jumbo Ethernet frames. The stge driver does not yet function properly with 1000BASE-T fitted boards. Currently, only 1000BASE-SX boards work. BSD
