Actually I got is as part of a "Network Starter Kit", as I needed 2 NICs
and a shared hub.  There is no opening on this box, but on the pictured
NIC, I can easily read the "21140-AC" next to the Digital logo.

A little "false advertising" in my opinion, but I guess I can't expect
to much from a cheap NIC.
