I had assumed it was a completely unrelated and dissimilar chip; is there
reason to suspect the tulip driver would make a reasonable basis for it?
Don't forget to write Netgear and tell them that, as a system integrator,
you cannot possibly recommend their cards, because it's impossible to tell
from the model number what hardware you're buying. All they had to do was
make it a *new model*.
