       ne2k-pci-diag  -  EEPROM  setup  and  diagnostic program for PCI NE2000
       ethernet cards.


       ne2k-pci-diag [options]


       ne2k-pci-diag is a program that you can use to diagnose  problems  with
       PCI NE200 Enternet adapters. This include cards with RealTek RTL8029AS,
       Holtak HT80232 ECON-PCI, Winbond W89c940f  and  VIA  VT86C926  (Amazon)


       These  programs  follow  the  usual  GNU command line syntax, with long
       options starting with two  dashes  (‘-’).   A  summary  of  options  is
       included below.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

       -V, --version
              Show version of program.

       -v, --verbose
              Verbose mode.

       -q, --quiet
              Be very unverbose.

       -a, --show_all_registers
              Print all registers.

       -# <cardnum>
              Use card number <cardnum>.

       -e, --show-eeprom
              Dump EEPROM contents to stdout.

       -E, --emergency-rewrite
              Re-write a corrupted EEPROM.

       -p, --port-base <port>
              Specify port to use.

       -F, --new-interface <interface>
              Interface number. Options that make sense are: 10baseT, 10base2,
              AUI,   100baseTx,   10baseT-FDX,    100baseTx-FDX,    100baseT4,
              100baseFx, 100baseFx-FDX, MII and Autosense.

       -H, --new-hwaddress <address>
              Set card to a new hardware address.

       -m, --show-mii
              Dump MII management registers.

       -R, --reset
              Reset the transceiver.

       -T, --test
              Do register and SRAM test.

       -w, --write-EEPROM <values>
              Write to the EEPROMS with the specified values. Do not use this,
              if you do not know what you do!

       -f, --force-detection
              Try to identify the card, even if it is active.

       -t, --chip-type <card>
              Explicitly set the chip. To get all valid numbers, run ne2k-pci-
              diag with the options ’-t -1’.
