I'm late to this party, but with regard to the DEC DE500 PCI
EtherFast NICs, there were three models, in this chronological order:
The precise model can be told from the FCC ID silkscreened on the
PCB. The XA does not support Nway autonegotiation; the AA and BA do.
In my experience with Alphas, the AA is the one you want if you want
to reliably netboot an Alpha on a modern 10/100 switch with auto
negotiation; the SRM support for the 21143 came late enough in the
game that not all systems got those revs (e.g. PC164).
