NetBSD 6.1.5 - man page for xi (netbsd section 4)

XI(4)				   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual 			    XI(4)

NAME
     xi -- Xircom CreditCard Ethernet device driver

SYNOPSIS
     xi* at xirc?

     Configuration of PHYs may also be necessary.  See mii(4).

DESCRIPTION
     The xi driver provides support for the Xircom CreditCard family of PCMCIA Ethernet adapters.
     Supported cards include:

	   Xircom CreditCard Ethernet II
	   Xircom CreditCard 10/100 Ethernet
	   Xircom RealPort 10/100 Ethernet + Modem (Ethernet function only)
	   Intel EtherExpress Pro/100
	   Compaq Netelligent 10/100

     Cards which should work, but have not been confirmed include:

	   Xircom RealPort Ethernet
	   Xircom RealPort 10/100 Ethernet

     Some Xircom Ethernet products are supported by the tlp(4) driver.

MEDIA SELECTION
     Media selection is done using ifconfig(8) using the standard ifmedia(4) mechanism.  Refer to
     those manual pages for more information.

SEE ALSO
     ifmedia(4), mii(4), netintro(4), pcmcia(4), tlp(4), xirc(4), ifconfig(8)

HISTORY
     The xi device driver appeared in NetBSD 1.5.

BUGS
     The driver suffers from poor performance.	Even with the 10/100 cards, do not expect more
     than ~450KB/s.  Some 10/100 cards may not autonegotiate reliably and require manual media
     selection.

     The Xircom multifunction cards which contain both Ethernet and modem interfaces are known to
     have problems.  This is due to the card not reporting itself correctly as a multifunction
     card.
