NAME


yge - Marvell Yukon 2 Ethernet device driver

SYNOPSIS


/dev/net/yge


DESCRIPTION


The yge driver supports Marvell Yukon 2 Fast Ethernet and Gigabit
Ethernet controllers.

Properties


The following properties can be configured using dladm(8):

adv_autoneg_cap
Enables (default) or disables IEEE 802.3 auto-
negotiation of link speed and duplex settings. If
enabled, the device negotiates among the supported
(and configured, see below) link options with the link
partner. If disabled, at least one of the link options
below must be specified. The driver selects the first
enabled link option according to the IEEE 802.3
specified preferences.


adv_1000fdx_cap
Enables the 1000 Mbps full-duplex link option.


adv_1000hdx_cap
Enables the 1000 Mbps half-duplex link option.


adv_100T4_cap
Enables the 100 BaseT4 link option. (Note that most
hardware does not support this unusual link style.
Also, this uses two pairs of wires for data, rather
than one.)


adv_100fdx_cap
Enables the 1000 Mbps full-duplex link option.


adv_100hdx_cap
Enables the 1000 Mbps half-duplex link option.


adv_10fdx_cap
Enables the 10 Base-T full-duplex link option.


adv_10hdx_cap
Enables the 10 Base-T half-duplex link option.


mtu
On most devices, can be set between 1500 (default) and
9000. This property can only be changed when the
device is not in use.
