IY(4)                   BSD Programmer's Manual (i386)                   IY(4)

NAME

     iy - Intel i82595 Ethernet driver

SYNOPSIS

     iy0 at isa? port 0x360 irq 7

DESCRIPTION

     The iy device driver supports the Ether-Express PRO/10 card, and might
     support other ISA cards using the same chip.

     Other models of Intel network cards are supported by the fxp(4) and ie(4)
     drivers.

     Various models of these cards come with a different assortment of connec-
     tors:

     AUI/DIX
          Standard 15 pin connector

     10Base2
          BNC, also known as thin-net

     10BaseT
          UTP, also known as twisted pair

     The default port to use is the port the card autodetects at ifconfig up
     time. To choose an alternative port, use the following flag combinations
     with ifconfig(8) or in the appropriate hostname.if(5) file.

     -link0 -link1
          Use the autodetected port (default).

     -link0  link1
          Use the BNC port.

      link0 -link1
          Use the AUI port.

      link0  link1
          Use the UTP port.

NOTES

     The EtherExpress PRO card has no jumpers to set the address. Intel sup-
     plies software to set the address of the card in software. You have to
     hardwire this address in your kernel configuration file.
