NAME

amd8111s - AMD-8111 Fast Ethernet Network Adapter driver  

SYNOPSIS

/dev/amd8111s

 

DESCRIPTION

The amd8111s Fast Ethernet driver is a multi-threaded, loadable, clonable, GLD-based STREAMS driver supporting the Data Link Provider Interface, dlpi(7P), on the AMD-8111 Fast Ethernet Network Adapter.

The amd8111s driver functions include controller initialization, frame transmit and receive, promiscuous and multicast support, and error recovery and reporting.  

APPLICATION PROGRAMMING INTERFACE

The cloning, character-special device /dev/amd8111 is used to access all AMD-8111 Fast Ethernet devices installed within the system.

The amd8111s driver is managed by the dladm(1M) command line utility, which allows VLANs to be defined on top of amd8111s instances and for amd8111s instances to be aggregated. See dladm(1M) for more details.  

CONFIGURATION

By default, the amd8111s driver performs auto-negotiation to select the link speed and mode. Link speed and mode can be any of the following:

100 Mbps, full-duplex.

100 Mbps, half-duplex.

10 Mbps, full-duplex.

10 Mbps, half-duplex.
