     The fxp device driver supports the Intel EtherExpress 100 family of Eth-
     ernet cards based on the i82557, i82558, i82559 and i82562 chipsets.
     These come in several different varieties, including dual-port cards, and
     as built-in Ethernet solutions on certain motherboards. This includes,
     among others, the following models:

           Intel EtherExpress PRO/100 PCI
           Intel EtherExpress PRO/100B PCI
           Intel EtherExpress PRO/100+ PCI
           Intel EtherExpress PRO/100 Dual-Port PCI
           Intel PRO/100 CardBus II PC Card
           Intel PRO/100 VE
           Intel PRO/100 VM
           Intel PRO/100 M

     Other models of Intel network cards are supported by the ie(4) and iy(4)
     drivers. This list is not exhaustive. In particular, the fxp driver
     should support any card by any manufacturer which is based on one of the
     aforementioned chipsets.

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

           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

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

           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 fxp driver places the card into au-
     toselect mode.

     These cards also come with a variety of PHYs. Models exist with PHYs sup-
     ported by both the inphy(4) and nsphy(4) drivers.


     fxp%d: couldn't map memory  A fatal initialization error has occurred.

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

     fxp%d: Failed to malloc memory  There are not enough mbufs available for
     fxp%d: device timeout  The device has stopped responding to the network,
     or there is a problem with the network connection (cable).

     The fxp device driver first appeared in OpenBSD 2.2.


     The fxp device driver was written by David Greenman. This manual page was
