IY(4)                      Kernel Interfaces Manual                      IY(4)

NAME
     iy -- Intel EtherExpress PRO/10 Ethernet driver (Intel i82595)

SYNOPSIS
     iy0 at isa? port {port} irq ?

DESCRIPTION
     The iy device driver supports the EtherExpress PRO/10 card, and might
     support other ISA cards using the same chip.

MEDIA SELECTION
     The different models of the supported boards come with some subset of
     RJ-45, BNC and AUI connectors.  Supported media include:

           AUI/DIX     Standard 15 pin connector

           10Base2     BNC, also known as thin-net

           10BaseT     UTP, also known as twisted pair

     The default port to use is the port the card autodetects at ifconfig up
     time.  To choose an alternative port, an explicit medium can be specified
     to ifconfig(8) or in your ifconfig.iy? file.

NOTES
     The EtherExpress PRO card has no jumpers to set the address.  Intel
     supplies software to set the address of the card in software.  You have
     to hardwire this address in your kernel configuration file.

SEE ALSO
     ed(4), eg(4), el(4), ep(4), intro(4), ix(4), le(4), ifconfig(8)

STANDARDS
     are great.  There's so many to choose from.
