Hi all;

When executing the "ifconfig" command, what is "txqueuelength" and "Base address" options?

txqueuelength -

"The maximum number of frames that can be queued on the device's transmission queue. ..."
Basically, faster network devices can have higher queue numbers.

Base address -

"The I/O base address of the network interface. This field, like the previous ones, is assigned by the driver during the device probe. ..."
aka - Linux kernel boot device initialization.
