3c574_cs - 3Com 3c574 Etherlink XL 10/100 PC Card device driver
insmod 3c574_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [if_port=n] [irq_list=i,j,...] [full_duplex=n]
3c574_cs is the low-level Card Services driver for the 3Com 3c574 EtherLink XL PCMCIA eth-
ernet adapter. When this driver is attached 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).
The driver uses the N-Way autonegotiating transceiver to negotiate the speed and duplex of
the network link. If the link partner does not support negotiation, only the link speed
Selects the PCMCIA debugging level. This parameter is only available if the module
is compiled with debugging enabled. A non-zero value enables debugging.
Selects the transceiver type. Only 0, 1, and 4 are acceptable values, other values
return an error. This actual value specificed is ignored -- the autonegotiating
transceiver selects the media speed and duplex used.
This option limits the set of interrupts that may be allocated by this driver. The
default is all normally-usable IRQs.
This flag determines if only full-duplex modes are advertised. It defaults to 0
This flag can be used to control the transceiver's auto polarity
detection capability. Some Cisco Catalyst switches are known to interact badly
with this feature in 10baseT mode. It defaults to 1 (enabled).
This option selects the maximum amount of work handled during each interrupt. Each
received packet counts as one unit of work, as does updating statistics counters
and handling errors. The default is 32.
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.
