SYNOPSIS

To compile support for the ex driver into your kernel, place the following line in your kernel configuration file:


.Cd "device ex"

Alternatively, to load the ex driver at boot time, place the following line in loader.conf(5):
if_ex_load="YES"

DESCRIPTION

The ex driver provides support for Ethernet adapters based on the Intel i82595 chip.

The card will be searched for in the I/O address range 0x200 - 0x3a0. If the IRQ will be read from the EEPROM on the card. For correct operation on newer cards the Plug-N-Play support should be disabled.

HARDWARE

The ex driver supports the following Ethernet adapters:

  • Intel EtherExpress Pro/10
  • Intel EtherExpress Pro/10+
  • The Olicom OC2220

DIAGNOSTICS

"ex%d: Intel EtherExpress Pro/10, address %6D, connector %s" The device probe found an installed card, and was able to correctly install the device driver.
"ex%d: WARNING: board’s EEPROM is configured for IRQ %d, using %d" The device probe detected that the board is configured for a different interrupt than the one specified in the kernel configuration file.
"ex%d: invalid IRQ." The device probe detected an invalid IRQ setting.
