NAME


atge - Device driver for Atheros/Attansic Ethernet chipsets

DESCRIPTION


The atge ethernet driver supports the Atheros/Attansic L1, L1E, and L1C
Ethernet (AR8121/AR8113/8114, AR8131/AR8132, and AR8151/AR8152) chipsets:

pciex1969,1026 Atheros AR8121/8113/8114
pciex1969,1048 Attansic L1
pciex1969,1062 Atheros AR8132 Fast Ethernet
pciex1969,1063 Atheros AR8131 Gigabit Ethernet
pciex1969,1073 Atheros AR8151 v1.0 Gigabit Ethernet
pciex1969,1083 Atheros AR8151 v2.0 Gigabit Ethernet
pciex1969,2060 Atheros AR8152 v1.1 Fast Ethernet
pciex1969,2062 Atheros AR8152 v2.0 Fast Ethernet


The atge driver supports IEEE 802.3 auto-negotiation, flow control and
VLAN tagging.

Configuration


The default configuration is auto-negotiation with bi-directional flow
control. The advertised capabilities for auto-negotiation are based on
the capabilities of the PHY.


You can set the capabilities advertised by the atge controlled device
using dladm(8). The driver supports only those parameters which begin
with en (enabled) in the parameters listed by the command dladm(8). Each
of these boolean parameters determines if the device advertises that mode
of operation when the hardware supports it.
