stge -- Sundance/Tamarack TC9021 Gigabit Ethernet driver
stge* at pci? dev ? function ? Configuration of PHYs or Ten-bit interfaces may also be necessary. See mii(4).
The stge device driver supports the Sundance/Tamarack TC9021 Gigabit Eth- ernet chip. The Sundance/Tamarack TC9021 is found on the D-Link DGE-550T, and the Antares Microsystems Gigabit Ethernet board. It uses an external PHY or an external 10-bit interface. The TC9021 supports IPv4/TCP/UDP checksumming in hardware. The stge driver supports this feature of the chip. See ifconfig(8) for informa- tion on how to enable this feature.

The stge driver first appeared in NetBSD 1.6.
The stge driver was written by Jason R. Thorpe <>.
The stge driver does not support the VLAN tag insertion/removal feature of the TC9021 chip. This is primarily because the TC9021's VLAN do not have a useful programming interface. The stge driver does not yet support jumbo Ethernet frames. The stge driver does not yet function properly with 1000BASE-T fitted boards. Currently, only 1000BASE-SX boards work.
