  16This driver provides kernel support for Davicom DM9102(A)/DM9132/DM9801 ethernet cards ( CNET
  1710/100 ethernet cards uses Davicom chipset too, so this driver supports CNET cards too ).If you
  18didn't compile this driver as a module, it will automatically load itself on boot and print a
  19line similar to :
  20
  21        dmfe: Davicom DM9xxx net driver, version 1.36.4 (2002-01-17)
  22
  23If you compiled this driver as a module, you have to load it on boot.You can load it with command :
  24
  25        insmod dmfe
  26
  27This way it will autodetect the device mode.This is the suggested way to load the module.Or you can pass
  28a mode= setting to module while loading, like :
  29
  30        insmod dmfe mode=0 # Force 10M Half Duplex
  31        insmod dmfe mode=1 # Force 100M Half Duplex
  32        insmod dmfe mode=4 # Force 10M Full Duplex
  33        insmod dmfe mode=5 # Force 100M Full Duplex
  34
  35Next you should configure your network interface with a command similar to :
  36
  37        ifconfig eth0 172.22.3.18
  38                      ^^^^^^^^^^^
  39                     Your IP Address
  40
  41Then you may have to modify the default routing table with command :
  42
  43        route add default eth0
  44
  45
  46Now your ethernet card should be up and running.

  49TODO:
  50
  51Implement pci_driver::suspend() and pci_driver::resume() power management methods.
  52Check on 64 bit boxes.
  53Check and fix on big endian boxes.
  54Test and make sure PCI latency is now correct for all cases.
