[eepro100] Internal timer interrupt / polling

Using the eepro100 chip for a high receive load system, I am working
on a kind of polling mode for the eepro100 driver. I found a few
posts about this in the 1999-February archive but I have some more


An internal timer seems to exist on the chip
but I can not find on the Datasheet how to control it.

Are they bits named Software Generated Interrupt / Software Interrupt (SWI) (SCBTriggerIntr / SCBStatus & 0x400) ?

Can we load the timer with our own value (a few micro-seconds) ?

Thank you for your help,
