bge - Broadcom BCM570x family Gigabit Ethernet driver
bge* at pci? dev ? function ? Configuration of PHYs may also be necessary. See mii(4).
The bge device driver supports Gigabit Ethernet interfaces based on the Broadcom BCM570x family of Gigabit Ethernet chips. The interfaces sup- ported by the bge driver include: + 3Com 3c996-T (10/100/1000baseTX) + Dell PowerEdge 2550 integrated BCM5700 NIC (10/100/1000baseTX) + IBM x235 server integrated BCM5703x NIC (10/100/1000baseTX) + Netgear GA302T (10/100/1000baseTX) + SysKonnect SK-9D21 (10/100/1000baseTX) + SysKonnect SK-9D41 (1000baseSX) The BCM570x family supports IPv4/TCP/UDP checksumming in hardware. The bge driver supports this feature of the chip. See ifconfig(8) for infor- mation on how to enable this feature.
