E1000G(4D) 4D E1000G(4D)


e1000g - Intel 1 Gigabit Client Ethernet Controller




The e1000g driver is a GLDv3 NIC driver for Intel 1 Gigabit Ethernet
devices which are often found as discrete PCI and PCI expresss add-on-cards
and built into many Intel chipsets and platforms.

On most models, the device driver supports transmit and receive
checksumming, 9000 byte jumbo frames, large send offload (LSO), LED control
and Ethernet Pause frames.

For each device supported by the e1000g driver, a character special-file
will be created for each instance. The first instance would have id 0 and
would be named e1000g0 and found in the file system at /dev/net/e1000g0.
This device node supports the Data Link Provider Interface (DLPI) which is
documented in dlpi(4P). libdlpi(3LIB) provides a more usable interface on
top of that.

For administrative control, the device can be manipulated through the
dladm(8) utility.

The igb(4D) driver supports many other Intel Gigabit parts.


The e1000g.conf file contains some user configurable parameters, the format
of which is documented in driver.conf(5). Generally, the use of dladm(8)
is recommended over editing the configuration file.
