 14.Sh NAME
 15.Nm miibus
 16.Nd IEEE 802.3 Media Independent Interface network bus
 17.Sh SYNOPSIS
 18For most network interface cards (NIC):
 19.Cd "device miibus"
 20.Sh DESCRIPTION
 21The
 22.Nm
 23driver provides an interconnection between the Media Access Control (MAC)
 24sublayer, the Physical Layer entities (PHY), Station Management (STA)
 25entities, and the PHY Layer as defined by the IEEE 802.3 Standard.
 26.Pp
 27The
 28.Nm
 29layer allows network device drivers to share common support
 30code for various external PHY devices.
 31Most 10/100 network interface cards either use an MII transceiver
 32or have built-in transceivers that can be programmed using an MII
 33interface.
 34The
 35.Nm
 36driver currently handles all of the media detection,
 37selection, and reporting using the ifmedia interface.
 38A generic driver has been included for all PHYs that are not
 39handled by a specific driver, this is possible because all
 4010/100 PHYs implement the same general register set along with
 41their vendor specific register set.
 42.Pp
 43The following network device drivers use the
 44.Nm
 45interface:

129.Sh COMPATIBILITY
130The implementation of
131.Nm
132was originally intended to have similar API interfaces
133to
134.Bsx 3.0
135and
136.Nx ,
137but as a result are not well behaved newbus device drivers.
