What Indy addon card is this?

Unread postby SiliconClassics » Fri Feb 23, 2018 10:00 am

This Indy that recently sold on eBay has an unfamiliar addon card. It looks like some sort of network adapter, but it's not a Phobos card. Anyone recognize it? Should probably be added to the wiki if identified.

Edit: Some digging suggests this might be a token ring network adapter

I'm more curious about the all-in-caps "DOES NOT INCLUDE POWER CORD!!!!" bit, as if the loss of a generic $3 cable is that big a deal...

Anyway, the logo on the card does seem to suggest token ring, looks like it anyway.

Well, you know, they also note that it is "in teal/aquamarine/turquoise" (you know, unlike all those bright red Indys), and that it "TURNS ON!!!!".

Yes, it's a token ring card.
