MOS(4)                   BSD Kernel Interfaces Manual                   MOS(4)

     mos -- MosChip MCS7730/7830/7832 10/100 USB Ethernet device

     mos*   at uhub?

     The mos driver provides support for USB Ethernet adapters based on the
     MosChip MCS7730, MCS7830 and MCS7832 USB 2.0 chipsets, including the fol-

     All adapters operate with either USB 1.x or USB 2.0 controllers, though
     performance with 1.x controllers is limited since the USB 1.x standard
     specifies a maximum transfer speed of 12Mbps.  Users with USB 1.x con-
     trollers should therefore not expect to actually achieve 100Mbps speeds
     with these devices.

     A 64-bit multicast hash table is supported, single perfect filter entry
     for the station address, all-multicast mode, and promiscuous mode.  Pack-
     ets are received and transmitted over separate USB bulk transfer end-

     The mos driver supports the following media types:

     autoselect  Enable autoselection of the media type and options (this is
                 the default).  The user can manually override the autose-
                 lected mode by adding media options to the appropriate
                 hostname.if(5) file.

     10baseT     Set 10Mbps operation.

     100baseTX   Set 100Mbps (Fast Ethernet) operation.

     The mos driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex  Force full-duplex operation.

     half-duplex  Force half-duplex operation.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).

     mos0: watchdog timeout  A packet was queued for transmission and a trans-
     mit command was issued, however the device failed to acknowledge the
     transmission before a timeout expired.

     mos0: no memory for rx list  The driver failed to allocate an mbuf for
     the receiver ring.

     The mos device driver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.5.

     The mos driver was written by Johann Christian Rode <jcrode@gmx.net>.
