SYNOPSIS

     ef* at isapnp?

DESCRIPTION

     The ef device driver supports the 3Com Fast EtherLink ISA family of Eth-
     ernet cards, and embedded controllers based on the 3Com "corkscrew" Eth-
     erLink chips. This includes the 3C515 adapter(s) with National Semicon-
     ductor DP83840 PHYs, see nsphy(4). Other models of 3Com network cards are
     supported by the ec(4), eg(4), el(4), ep(4), ie(4) and xl(4) drivers.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).
