DESCRIPTION
The ne device driver supports NE2000 and compatible (including NE1000) Ethernet cards. While the original NE2000 is designed for ISA bus, the compatible Realtek 8019 chip is widely used on various local busses and ne driver also supports such devices on various machines.
MEDIA SELECTION
The Realtek 8019 (ISA, ISAPnP, some PCMCIA) and Realtek 8029 (PCI) NE2000-compatible Ethernet chips include support for software media selection. Some cards based on AX88x9x chips (like X-Surf 100) also support media selection and link auto negotiation through the mii(4) interface. If one of the above chips is detected by the driver, the list of sup- ported media will be displayed. For all other chips supported by the ne driver, media selection must be performed either via card jumper settings or by vendor-supplied configu- ration programs.
DIAGNOSTICS
ne0: where did the card go? The driver found the card, but was unable to make the card respond to complete the configuration sequence.
