Which SE Ethernet card do I have?

Now that I have my SE booting again (yay!) I'd like to connect it to my Ethernet network. 

I have one of these: 








2nd pic is the little daughter card that attaches to the back of the SE. Anyone know what it is and where I might find drivers for it? I'm running System 6.0.8. 

Cheers,

Joel

It's an Asanté card. You can get various versions of their Ethertalk driver and utility suite here. It should be able to detect and install the right drivers for your card. It mentions System 6 support as well.

Doesn't look like Asanté at all but it's worth trying their drivers anyways.

DP839** controllers are all register compatible. If they mapped it into the same address space as Asanté cards then their driver will work.

In hindsight, my Google game is a bit weak, everything I looked for regarding "StNic" or "ST-NIC" pointed to Asanté, but apparently it's because they made a NuBus card dubbed that, after the chipset. There is also a Dayna "StNic" card, but not for the SE. Though the silkscreen font on this card does look like what Dayna used.

Looks like I will have to download and try all of them and see what works! Thanks for the link, that looks like a very comprehensive resource. Will report back.
