Driver for Farallon 10-baseT PCI card? - Mac Networking

I'm trying to get a recently acquired 6400 working. It's running OS 8.5. I isolated the problem to the Apple Ethernet CS II extension (v 1.1); when removed it booted, and when installed, it crashed during boot with a Type 11 system error. I replaced the extension with another copy someone sent me (thanks, Doug!), but the problem persists. The PCI 10-baseT Ethernet card has this tag on it: Farallon 0000C5/4658C1. No other identification. (It is not a Comm slot card. It is in a slot in the PCI adapter.) I called the support phone number for Farallon card support ...

    Default Driver for Farallon 10-baseT PCI card?

    I'm trying to get a recently acquired 6400 working. It's running OS 8.5.

    I isolated the problem to the Apple Ethernet CS II extension (v 1.1); when
    removed it booted, and when installed, it crashed during boot with a Type 11
    system error.

    I replaced the extension with another copy someone sent me (thanks, Doug!),
    but the problem persists.

    The PCI 10-baseT Ethernet card has this tag on it: Farallon 0000C5/4658C1. No
    other identification. (It is not a Comm slot card. It is in a slot in the PCI
    adapter.)

    I called the support phone number for Farallon card support (a department of
    Proxim -- bought Farallon's cards?) in India. They don't have any listing in
    their data base for this card (indeed, the fellow there couldn't tell me what
    the product name or drive file was so I could search for it on the 'net).

    I don't understand something else about this situation. Is the Apple Ethernet
    CS II extension required for this Farallon card? Or is there a Farallon
    driver I should be using? Both drivers together? Only one? Which?

    Any pointers to the card driver or other help to get this system/card running
    would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    I read about the conflict between the Farallon driver and the Apple Enet
    extension (only one or the other). This would be a simple solution if:
    1. I knew what Farallon driver I needed
    2. I had a copy of the driver

    Thanks,

    OK, I've figured out that "Ethernet CS II" stands for Ethernet Com Slot type
    II card, which the Farallon PCI card is not. So out goes the CS II extension.

    Now I just need to find the Farallon card driver for OS 8.5.

    Help?

    Thanks,

    I have a number of Farallon PCI network cards that have 10-b-T and 10-b-2
    terminations together with the driver floppies. Not to hand but I'll dig
    them out and see exactly what model they are. I threw them 'away' in
    disgust when Farallon stated they would not be updating the drivers from OS
    8.1 to OS 8.6. Which was what I was attempting on our network. Suffice to
    say that's the last piece of Farallon equipment I'll ever touch.
