NAME

     bce - Broadcom BCM4401 Ethernet device driver

SYNOPSIS

     bce* at pci? dev ? function ?

DESCRIPTION

     The bce provides support for the Broadcom BCM4401 10/100 Ethernet card.
     Other cards from the 440x series may also be supported.

     The following media types and options (as given to ifconfig(8)) are sup-
     ported:

           media autoselect
                Enable autoselection of the media type and options (default).

           media 100baseTX mediaopt full-duplex
                Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation and force full-duplex
                mode.

           media 100baseTX mediaopt half-duplex
                Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation and force half-duplex
                mode.

           media 10baseT mediaopt full-duplex
                Set 10Mbps operation and force full-duplex.

           media 10baseT mediaopt half-duplex
                Set 10Mbps operation and force half-duplex.

     If no media options are present, the bce driver places the card into au-
     toselect mode.

DIAGNOSTICS

     bce%d: failed to enable memory mapping!  A fatal initialization error has
     occurred.

     bce%d: unable to find mem space  A fatal initialization error has oc-
     curred.

     bce%d: unable to wake up from power state D%d  The card has lost its con-
     figuration data during power save mode.

     bce%d: couldn't map interrupt  A fatal initialization error has occurred.

     bce%d: couldn't establish interrupt  A fatal initialization error has oc-
     curred.

     bce%d: unable to alloc space for ring descriptors, error = %d  A fatal
     initialization error has occurred.

     bce%d: unable to map DMA buffers, error = %d  A fatal initialization er-
     ror has occurred.

     bce%d: unable to create ring DMA map, error = %d  A fatal initialization
     error has occurred.

     bce%d: unable to create tx DMA map, error = %d  A fatal initialization
     error has occurred.

     bce%d: unable to create rx DMA map, error = %d  A fatal initialization
     error has occurred.

     bce%d: Tx packet consumes too many DMA segments, dropping...  An outgoing
     packet didn't fit in the allocated number of segments.

     bce%d: unable to load Tx buffer, error = %d  Short on resources when
     transmitting a packet, it will be retried later.

     bce%d: device timeout  The device has stopped responding to the network
     or there is a problem with the network connection (cable).

     bce%d: transmit fifo underflow  An error occurred, the interface will be
     reinitialized.

     bce%d: receive fifo overflow  An error occurred, the interface will be
     reinitialized.

     bce%d: receive descriptor underflow  An error occurred, the interface
     will be reinitialized.

     bce%d: descriptor protocol error  An error occurred, the interface will
     be reinitialized.

     bce%d: data error  An error occurred, the interface will be reinitial-
     ized.

     bce%d: descriptor error  An error occurred, the interface will be reini-
     tialized.

     bce%d: general purpose timeout  An error occurred, the interface will be
     reinitialized.

     bce%d: unable to allocate or map rx(%d) mbuf, error = %d  Failed to ini-
     tialize the interface.

     bce%d: timed out writing pkt filter ctl  Failed to add MAC address.

     bce%d: timed out disabling ethernet mac  A problem occurred when reset-
     ting the interface.

     bce%d: receive dma did not go idle after error  A problem occurred when
     resetting the interface.

     bce%d: timed out resetting ethernet mac  A problem occurred when reset-
     ting the interface.

     bce%d: while resetting core, reject did not set  A problem occurred when
     resetting the interface.

     bce%d: while resetting core, busy did not clear  A problem occurred when
     resetting the interface.

     bce%d: PHY read timed out reading phy %d, reg %d, val = %x  An error oc-
     curred when reading a PHY register on the MII.

     bce%d: PHY read timed out writing phy %d, reg %d, val = %x  An error oc-
     curred when writing a PHY register on the MII.
