NAME
bge -- Broadcom BCM570x family Gigabit Ethernet driver
SYNOPSIS
bge* at pci? dev ? function ? Configuration of PHYs may also be necessary. See mii(4).
DESCRIPTION
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 (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T) Dell PowerEdge 2550 integrated BCM5700 NIC (10BASE-T/100BASE- TX/1000BASE-T) IBM x235 server integrated BCM5703x NIC (10BASE-T/100BASE- TX/1000BASE-T) Netgear GA302T (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T) SysKonnect SK-9D21 (10BASE-T/100BASE-TX/1000BASE-T) SysKonnect SK-9D41 (1000BASE-SX) 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.
