epic-diag - EEPROM setup and diagnostic program for SMC EtherPowerII ethernet cards and others.
epic-diag is a program that you can use to diagnose problems with ethernet cards
based on the SMC83C170 series EPIC/100 chip, as used on the SMC EtherPowerII boards.
These programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
options starting with two dashes (`-').
A summary of options is included below.
Show summary of options.
Show version of program.
Be very unverbose.
Use card number <cardnum>.
Print all registers.
Dump EEPROM contents to stdout.
Re-write a corrupted EEPROM.
-p, --port-base <port>
Specify port to use.
-A, --Advertise <mediaype>
Advertise media type. Valid Options are: 10baseT, 100baseT4, 100baseTx,
100baseTx-FD, 100baseTx-HD, 10baseT-FD and 10baseHD.
-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.
Dump MII management registers.
Reset the transceiver.
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!
Try to identify the card, even if it is active.
-t, --chip-type <card>
Explicitly set the chip. To get all valid numbers, run epic-diag with the options '-t -1'.
