The aue driver provides support for USB Ethernet adapters based on the ADMtek AN986 Pegasus chipset.
The LinkSys USB10T adapters that contain the AN986 Pegasus chipset will operate at 100Base-TX and full-duplex.
The Pegasus contains a 10/100 Ethernet MAC with MII interface and is designed to work with both Ethernet and HomePNA transceivers. Although designed to interface with 100Mbps peripherals, the existing USB standard specifies a maximum transfer speed of 12Mbps. Users should therefore not expect to actually achieve 100Mbps speeds with these devices.
The Pegasus supports a 64-bit multicast hash table, single perfect filter entry for the station address and promiscuous mode. Packets are received and transmitted over separate USB bulk transfer endpoints.
The aue driver supports the following media types:
