DESCRIPTION
     The axe driver provides support for USB Ethernet adapters based on the
     ASIX Electronics AX88172, AX88178, and AX88772 USB 2.0 chipsets.

     The chip contains a 10/100 Ethernet MAC with MII interface and is
     designed to work with both Ethernet and HomePNA transceivers.  The AX8172
     and AX88772 contain 10/100 Ethernet MACs with MII interfaces.  The AX8178
     contains a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet MAC with a GMII/MII interface.
     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.

     1000baseT             Set 1000Mbps (Gigabit Ethernet) operation (AX88178
                           only).

     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).

HISTORY
     The axe device driver first appeared in FreeBSD and was ported to
     NetBSD 3.0.  It replaces the NetBSD uax driver.

NetBSD 7.0                       June 23, 2010                      NetBSD 7.0
