 29.Dt XE 4
 30.Os
 31.Sh NAME
 32.Nm xe
 33.Nd "Xircom PCMCIA Ethernet device driver"
 34.Sh SYNOPSIS
 35To compile this driver into the kernel,
 36place the following line in your
 37kernel configuration file:
 38.Bd -ragged -offset indent
 39.Cd "device xe"
 40.Ed
 41.Pp
 42Alternatively, to load the driver as a
 43module at boot time, place the following line in
 44.Xr loader.conf 5 :
 45.Bd -literal -offset indent
 46if_xe_load="YES"
 47.Ed
 48.Sh DESCRIPTION
 49The
 50.Nm
 51driver supports
 52.Tn PCMCIA
 53Ethernet adapters based on Xircom CE2- and CE3-class hardware.
 54This includes devices made by Xircom along with
 55various
 56.Tn OEM
 57manufacturers.
 58.Pp
 59Please note that the
 60.Nm
 61driver only supports
 62.Tn PCMCIA
 63cards and their Ethernet functions.
 64.Nm
 65does not support the on-board modem device located on some
 66version of the Ethernet/modem combo cards.
 67In particular, Xircom RealPort2 cards are not supported by this driver.
 68.Pp
 69The
 70.Nm
 71driver supports the following media types:
 72.Bl -tag -width ".Cm autoselect"
 73.It Cm autoselect
 74Enable autoselection of media type and options.
 75.It Cm 10Base2/BNC
 76Select 10Mbps operation on a BNC coaxial connector.
 77.It Cm 10BaseT/UTP
 78Select 10Mbps operation on a RJ-45 connector.
 79.It Cm 100BaseTX
 80Select 100Mbps operation.
 81.El
 82.Pp
 83Note that 100BaseTX operation is not available on CE2-class cards,
 84while the 10Base2/BNC mode is only available on CE2-class cards.
 85Full-duplex
 86operation is currently not supported.
 87For more information on configuring network interface devices,
 88see
 89.Xr ifconfig 8 .

125.Sh DIAGNOSTICS
126.Bl -diag
127.It "xe%d: Cannot allocate ioport"
128.It "xe%d: Cannot allocate irq"
129A fatal initialization error occurred while attempting to allocate
130system resources for the card.
131.It "xe%d: Unable to fix your %s combo card"
132A fatal initialization error occurred while attempting to attach an
133Ethernet/modem combo card.
134.It "xe%d: watchdog timeout: resetting card"
135The card failed to generate an interrupt acknowledging a
136transmitted packet.
137May indicate a
138.Tn PCMCIA
139configuration problem.
140.It "xe%d: no carrier"
141The card has lost all contact with the network; this
142usually indicates a cable problem.
