ep -- Ethernet driver for 3Com Etherlink III (3c5x9)
The ep device driver supports various PCMCIA cards including the 3c589.
Various models of these cards come with a different assortment of connec-
AUI/DIX Standard 15 pin connector, also known as 10base5
10Base2 BNC, also known as thin-net
10BaseT UTP, also known as twisted pair
The default port to use is the port that has been selected with the setup
utility. To override this, use the following media options with
ifconfig(8) or in your /etc/rc.conf file.
10base5/AUI Use the AUI port.
10base2/BNC Use the BNC port.
10baseT/UTP Use the UTP port.
If there are multiple cards in the computer, they are searched for in the
following order: bus, slot, then ethernet address.
ep0: reset (status: %x) The driver has encountered a FIFO underrun or
overrun. The driver will reset the card and the packet will be lost.
This is not fatal.
ep0: eeprom failed to come ready The eeprom failed to come ready. This
probably means the card is wedged.
ed(4), ifmedia(4), intro(4), ng_ether(4), vx(4), ifconfig(8)
are great. There's so many to choose from.
