It's a 25Mbit adapter (copper media).
I think they went for $99 at one time.
(I've got an evaluation board with similar hardware (with
connectors for the logic analyzer), but never made any use
of it because it is the only 25Mbit part around here.)

The IDT chips are well documented, and there is sample
code available. So it "only" needs somebody to write a
driver... There are  155 MBit adapters with the same
SAR chip (77201/77211), so the effort woult not be wasted.
