Hey everyone, I got the dos 3C5X9cfg.exe and ran it to
collect more stats about the card. In fact, the card
is older than I thought (still in good condition
The information I collected was
3Com 3c509 TPO EtherLink III 16-bit ISA NIC
NIC type - TP-Only
Manufactured - 4-25-1990 :)
I/O base address - 300H
Interrupt - 10
