3C589_CS(4)                                           3C589_CS(4)

NAME
       3c589_cs - 3Com 3c589 Etherlink III device driver

SYNOPSIS
       insmod 3c589_cs.o [pc_debug=n] [tc589_debug=n] [if_port=n]
       [irq_list=i,j,...]

DESCRIPTION
       3c589_cs is the low-level Card  Services  driver  for  the
       3Com  3c589  PCMCIA  ethernet adapter and 3Com 3c562/3c563
       combo cards.  When this driver is attached 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 cardmgr(8).

       The driver will attempt to autodetect the transceiver type
       (10base2 or 10baseT) when an ethernet  device  is  opened.
       If  the autodetection is unsuccessful, it may be necessary
       to specify the specify the interface type when the  module
       is loaded or with the ifport command.

PARAMETERS
       pc_debug=n
              Selects the PCMCIA debugging level.  This parameter
              is only available if the module  is  compiled  with
              debugging enabled.  A non-zero value enables debug-
              ging.

       tc589_debug=n
              Selects the network debugging level.   The  current
              default  is 3; values of up to six increase report-
              ing verbosity.

       if_port=n
              Selects the  transceiver  type.   0  is  autodetect
              (10baseT  or 10base2), 1 is 10baseT (twisted pair),
              2 is 10base2 (BNC, or  thin  net).  and  3  is  AUI
              (thick ethernet).  The default is 0 (autodetect).

       irq_list=i,j,...
              Specifies  the  set of interrupts that may be allo-
              cated by this driver.
