3c589_cs - 3Com 3c589 Etherlink III device driver
insmod 3c589_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [if_port=n] [irq_list=i,j,...]
3c589_cs is the low-level Card Services driver for the 3Com 3c589 PCMCIA ethernet adapter
and 3Com 3c562/3c563 combo cards. 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).
With the default transceiver setting, the driver will attempt to continuously autodetect
the transceiver type (10base2 or 10baseT). There should normally only be a one or two
second lag before the correct transceiver is selected. On particularly noisy or busy net-
works, it is possible for the detection logic to incorrectly toggle the transceiver type.
If this becomes a problem, it may be necessary to explicitly select the interface type
when the module is loaded or with the ifport command.
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. 0 is autodetect (10baseT or 10base2), 1 is 10baseT
(twisted pair), 2 is 10base2 (BNC, or thin net). and 3 is AUI (thick ethernet).
The default is 0 (autodetect).
Specifies the set of interrupts that may be allocated by this 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.
