Driver for Broadcom 57xx Tigon3 10/100/1000 Mbit Ethernet controllers

where variant is one of v4, v4-hc, or v6-hc.
The devnp-bge.so driver manages the Broadcom 57xx Tigon3 10/100/1000 Mbit Ethernet controllers. This is a ported NetBSD driver; its interface names are in the form bgeX, where X is an integer.
Some devices support hardware checksums, although some might do so in only one direction; to determine if your device does, type:
and look for the following in the list of supported options:
You can then use ifconfig to enable or disable whichever of these options your device supports.
|Native io-pkt and ported NetBSD drivers don't put entries into the /dev/io-net namespace, so a waitfor command for such an entry won't work properly in buildfiles or scripts. Use if_up -p instead; for example, instead of waitfor /dev/io-net/bge0, use if_up -p bge0.|
Start the v4 TCP/IP variant of io-pkt using the devnp-bge.so driver:
io-pkt-v4 -d bge ifconfig bge0 10.184
