driver supports PCI Express Ethernet
adapters based on the Agere ET1310 chip.
driver supports the following media
- Enable autoselection of the media types and options. The user can manually
override the autoselected mode by adding media options to the
- Set 10Mbps operation. The mediaopt option
can also be used to select either
- Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation. The
mediaopt option can also be used to
select either full-duplex or
- Set 1000Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet) operation. The
mediaopt option can only be set to
driver supports the following
- Force full-duplex operation.
- Force half-duplex operation.
Note that the 1000baseT media type is only available if it is supported by the
adapter. For more information on configuring this device, see

- This value controls how many packets should be received before a receive
interrupt is generated. The default value is 32. It is recommended to set
this value above 38 to prevent the host from being livelocked under a high
degree of stress.
- This value delays the generation of receive interrupts in units of ~4
microseconds. It is used together with
hw.et.rx_intr_npkts to achieve RX
interrupt moderation. The default value is 20.
- This value controls how many segments (not packets) should be transmitted
before a transmit interrupt is generated. The default value is 126. It is
recommended to set this value below 280 to prevent the TX ring from
- This value controls how often a timer interrupt should be generated. It is
used together with hw.et.tx_intr_nsegs to
achieve TX interrupt moderation. The default value is 1000000000
