AXNET_CS(4)			     Kernel Interfaces Manual			      AXNET_CS(4)

NAME
       axnet_cs - Asix AX88190 chipset PCMCIA Ethernet Driver

SYNOPSIS
       insmod axnet_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [irq_list=i,j,...]

DESCRIPTION
       Axnet_cs  is  a driver for PCMCIA ethernet cards based on the Asix AX88190 chipset.  These
       cards are mostly NE2000 compatible but have several bugs that are sufficiently  tricky  to
       work  around  that a separate driver was deemed necessary.  When this driver is bound to a
       card, it  allocates the next available ethernet device  (eth0..eth#).   This  device  name
       will be reported in the kernel log file, and passed on to cardmgr(8).

PARAMETERS
       pc_debug=n
	      Selects the PCMCIA debugging level.  This parameter is only available if the module
	      is compiled with debugging enabled.  A non-zero value enables debugging.

       irq_list=i,j,...
	      Specifies the set of interrupts that may be allocated by this driver.

DIAGNOSTICS
       axnet_cs: this is not an AX88190 card!
	      Indicates that this card	is  probably  a  normal  NE2000  compatible  card,  which
	      requires the pcnet_cs driver.

       eth#: interrupt(s) dropped!
	      Indicates  that  the driver did not receive an interrupt notification for some rea-
	      son.  The driver will poll the card (with a significant performance penalty) if the
	      problem  persists.   The	most  likely  cause  is an interrupt conflict and/or host
	      bridge configuration problem.
