The NICs on the older set of computers at the Church Server Project
have FCC ID: EJMNIO-EPXISA2W, and, IIRC, are recognized in Linux as "Intel Ether Express Pro/10+ ISA" (and the one I tested with found id 0x34 and io 0x300 — no IRQ).
It appears there is a FLASH PROM on the card. It has a paper label "Intel © 1966 352653-001". Scraping off the paper, I find:
-158 (? or -150?)
U542615 Intel '88 '93 (and some other marks, maybe the ©)
I wonder if:
- These already support INTEL PXE (I suspect not)
- I can flash these (what does it take, can it be done on board?)
- Can I move these to other NICs with 32 pin sockets for PROMS?
(3/5/05): When attempting to install one of these cards on a Win98 box, in the Windows card resources, IRQ 3 and I/0 200-20F were shown—I don't know if Windows (98) actually detected that or "assumed" those were the settings based on a standard configuration (0). The closest drivers available on the Win98 install disk (Intel EtherExpress Pro/10+ (ISA), in both PNP and not PNP versions) did not seem to work._
I'm forgetting how to do things in Windows. I found conflicts between this card and the joystick port and something else. In the bios, I set IRQ 3 to ISA (or whatever, instead of PNP). I deleted the joystick--when I rebooted, the joystick was reinstalled but with a different I/O address.
