Macintosh Ethernet LC PN 820-0443-C
Apple Ethernet LC Twisted Pair PN 820-0532-A

For SMC driver:
Asante MacCon CS PN 09-00098-12
API Engineering LC PDS
Spectrum Engineering PDS PN 7ET-L10
Asante AsanteFAST 10/100 Nubus PN 09-00096-01

For Mac8390 driver:
Asante MacCon+610 for 610 PDS slot
Asante MCiLC PN 09-00062-03
Asante MCNB PN 09-00061-02
Asante MC3NB 4 different versions PN 09-0030x-52
Apple Ethernet PN 820-0207A
Farallon Ethernet A-Series 590a-TP
Farallon Ethernet A-Series (different than above no PN)
Farallon EtherMac II-TP 590a-TP
Farallon EtherWave 890-TP
Farallon EtherMac LC-TP 592a-TP
Cabletron DNI PN 9000343-05
DaynaPort E/II-T PN 00802-2001-000
Kinetics EtherPort IIN

The following cards have been tested and DO NOT work with the present

DaynaPort E/Si 30 - should use sonic driver, can't locate sonic register
Apple Ethernet NB Twisted Pair PN 820-0511A - should use sonic driver,
can't locate sonic register address.

Farallon Commslot Card - Should use SMC driver but contains no Nubus ROM
and I can't locate the address of the SMC registers.

DaynaPort E/CS-T (Crystal) - Should use the mac89x0 driver, but it can't
locate the registers.
