That's a NetGear FA-510. Works Great. Typing over it now.

The PHY is made by Enable Semiconductor. I have been unable to reach
them (their publised URL of http://www.enablesemi.com/ doesn't even
resolve!), which is why I don't have the datasheet to write the PHY
driver with. But ukphy is working fine for me. The thing is plugged
into a no-name, cheap-ass 10baseT hub. It also works fine when plugged
into a NetGear 10baseT hub when I'm in my office.
You should, however, read the message I recently sent to tech-net
regarding NWAY, PHYs, and all that.
