Strange,  That is what I have. 2  FA310TX's, REV-D2 which I bought last end of
last year.  To be fair, I did use the "regular" tulip driver which came
with the 2.2.12 kernel.  It was the 2.2.17 kernel where I had to use 
"old_tulip".  As for model numbers, you are correct,  I just found a
FA311 in my closet, and I have a floppy with a fa311.c driver file
and then it goes on to say :

"The FA311 driver is developed for use on Linux v2.0.36. It can be
configured either as a static driver into the kernel or as a loadable
module. The driver is capable of 10/100 Mbps Full/Half duplex mode
operation via an internal PHY. Detailed features are given below.
"  and .....

"Unsupported Features
Newer MP kernels 2.2.xx"

(All of my Netgear cards have come with floppies with M$ drivers and
Linux drivers.)
