DESCRIPTION
     The axe driver provides support for USB (2.0) Ethernet adapters based on
     the ASIX AX88172 chip.

     The chip contains a 10/100 Ethernet MAC with MII interface and is
     designed to work with both Ethernet and HomePNA transceivers.  The chip
     also supports USB 2.0, thereby accommodating 100 Mb/s data rates.

     The axe driver supports the following media types:

     autoselect            Enable automatic selection of the media type and
                           options.

     10baseT/UTP           Set 10Mbps operation.  The mediaopt option can also
                           be used to enable full-duplex operation.  Not spec-
                           ifying full duplex implies half-duplex mode.

     100baseTX             Set 100Mbps (fast Ethernet) operation.  The
                           mediaopt option can also be used to enable
                           full-duplex operation.  Not specifying full duplex
                           implies half-duplex mode.

     The axe driver supports the following media options:

     full-duplex           Force full duplex operation.  The interface will
                           operate in half duplex mode if this media option is
                           not specified.

     For more information on configuring this device, see ifconfig(8).
