PCNET_CS(4)									      PCNET_CS(4)

NAME
       pcnet_cs - generic NS8390-based PCMCIA Ethernet Driver

SYNOPSIS
       insmod	 pcnet_cs.o    [pc_debug=n]   [irq_list=i,j,...]    [if_port=n]   [full_duplex=n]
       [use_big_buf=n]	  [use_shmem=n]     [mem_speed=n]     [delay_output=n]	   [delay_time=n]
       [hw_addr=n,n,n,n,n,n]

DESCRIPTION
       Pcnet_cs is a driver for all NS8390-based PCMCIA ethernet cards.  It can use either polled
       IO or a shared memory window to exchange data with the card.  The driver first tests for a
       shared  memory  buffer,	falling  back  on  polled IO if the memory test fails.	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.

       if_port=n
	      Selects the transceiver type, for Socket EA and  IBM  CCAE  cards.   1  is  10baseT
	      (twisted pair), and 2 is 10base2 (BNC, or thin net).  The default is 1 (10baseT).

       full_duplex=n
	      For  DL10022  based  cards where pcnet_cs can't find the MII interface, this option
	      permits manual control of the duplex setting.  1 is full	duplex,  and  0  is  half
	      duplex; the default is 0.

       use_big_buf=n
	      For  Socket  EA  cards,  a flag indicating if the driver should use the large (64K)
	      packet buffer.  The default is 1 (true).

       use_shmem=n
	      Selects shared memory versus polled IO mode for packet transfers.  The  default  is
	      -1, meaning to use the card's CIS information to decide.

       mem_speed=n
	      Sets  the access speed of the shared memory window, in nanoseconds.  The default is
	      0 (i.e., no extra wait states).  Values of up to 1000 are legal.

       delay_output=n
	      Specifies that a delay should be inserted after a polled IO block output.  This  is
	      turned on by default for Accton and Socket EA cards.

       delay_time=n
	      Specifies the length of the delay_output delay, in microseconds.	The default is 4.

       hw_addr=n,n,n,n,n,n
	      For  cards  whose  hardware  ethernet  addresses can't be identified by the current
	      driver, this is a hack for hardwiring a specific address.  The argument should con-
	      sist  of exactly six byte-sized numbers, separated by commas, with no spaces.  Num-
	      bers may be in decimal or hex ('0xNN').

DIAGNOSTICS
       pcnet_cs: this is an AX88190 card!
	      Indicates that this card is based on the Asix AX88190 chipset, which  requires  the
	      axnet_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.

       eth#: MII is missing!
	      Indicates that the driver expects this card to have a  ``Media  Independent  Inter-
	      face'' for link speed and duplex selection, but could not find it.
