axnet_cs - Asix AX88190 chipset PCMCIA Ethernet Driver
insmod axnet_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [irq_list=i,j,...]
Axnet_cs is a driver for PCMCIA ethernet cards based on the Asix
AX88190 chipset. These cards are mostly NE2000 compatible but have
several bugs that are sufficiently tricky to work around that a sepa-
rate driver was deemed necessary. When this driver is bound to a card,
it allocates the next available ethernet device (eth0..eth#). This
device name will be reported in the kernel log file, and passed on to
Selects the PCMCIA debugging level. This parameter is only
available if the module is compiled with debugging enabled. A
non-zero value enables debugging.
Specifies the set of interrupts that may be allocated by this
axnet_cs: this is not an AX88190 card!
Indicates that this card is probably a normal NE2000 compatible
card, which requires the pcnet_cs driver.
eth#: interrupt(s) dropped!
Indicates that the driver did not receive an interrupt notifica-
tion for some reason. The driver will poll the card (with a
significant performance penalty) if the problem persists. The
most likely cause is an interrupt conflict and/or host bridge
This man page describes the standalone PCMCIA drivers provided by the
pcmcia-cs source, not the PCMCIA kernel driver support that is included
in the 2.4 (and later) linux kernel. While the kernel PCMCIA code has
the same functionality as the driver side of the standalone PCMCIA
package, there are some important differences. Therefore, some or all
of this documentation might not apply to the kernel drivers.
