SE Ethercard ID needed

I recently picked up an ethernet card for a MAC SE.

However, I have no idea who made the card and thus can't
find software to activate it.  There is no manufacturer on
the card, but the following things do exist:
  o A bar code sticker with two numbers things on it:
      a) "PN596C"
      b) "03342"
  o A puck style chip in a deap socket with "SNIC(tm)" and
    a few other numbers on it.  It looks like a national
    semi-conductor logo (in my limited knowledge ;)

  o A ribbon cable running to a board that bolts into the
    back of the machine.  The board is a "combo" style board
    with Thin, Thick, and 10T (with a switch to change
    between thin and 10T).  The board is labeled
    "Connector card  A series"

There is a copyright from 93 on it as well.

Does anyone have any ideas?  I have tried system 7.5, 7.5.3
(squish!), and 7.1 with no luck.  I have also tried the
Asanti diagnostic software with no longer, so I think that
rules that vendor out...

Its very simple:
Ethernet cards for Macs are plug and play.

So take an ethernet tranciever that you know works on another machine (Ethernet cards wont work with faulty trancievers or no trancievers) and plug it in.

Go to the network (or AppleTalk) controlpanel and switch to ethernet.
If you can't do it - then the card is not working and you must get another one.

In very seldom cases there are a driver that you must load, but the instructions would be there for you to read, and they would be simple. Like plop this thing here into the extentionfolder etc.

Diagnostic? If you can't get it to work like I described - then its broken.
