  14This driver provides kernel support for Davicom DM9102(A)/DM9132/DM9801 ethernet cards ( CNET
  1510/100 ethernet cards uses Davicom chipset too, so this driver supports CNET cards too ).If you
  16didn't compile this driver as a module, it will automatically load itself on boot and print a
  17line similar to :
  18
  19        dmfe: Davicom DM9xxx net driver, version 1.36.4 (2002-01-17)
  20
  21If you compiled this driver as a module, you have to load it on boot.You can load it with command :
  22
  23        insmod dmfe
  24
  25This way it will autodetect the device mode.This is the suggested way to load the module.Or you can pass
  26a mode= setting to module while loading, like :
  27
  28        insmod dmfe mode=0 # Force 10M Half Duplex
  29        insmod dmfe mode=1 # Force 100M Half Duplex
  30        insmod dmfe mode=4 # Force 10M Full Duplex
  31        insmod dmfe mode=5 # Force 100M Full Duplex
  32
  33Next you should configure your network interface with a command similar to :
  34
  35        ifconfig eth0 172.22.3.18
  36                      ^^^^^^^^^^^
  37                     Your IP Address
  38
  39Then you may have to modify the default routing table with command :
  40
  41        route add default eth0
  42
  43
  44Now your ethernet card should be up and running.

  47TODO:
  48
  49Implement pci_driver::suspend() and pci_driver::resume() power management methods.
  50Check on 64 bit boxes.
  51Check and fix on big endian boxes.
  52Test and make sure PCI latency is now correct for all cases.
