Thread: 8-bit ISA Modem card.

  1. #1

    Question 8-bit ISA Modem card.

    Hi I found this Modem card in my IBM 5155 and there was a diskette in the drive and it had some drivers for it and I tried to find some information about it but couldn't find anything about it. Here are some pictures.

    The primary chip on the card (WD83C580) seems to be for StarLAN, roughly 1 Mbit Ethernet. If that is correct, the "phone jacks" should have more wires than a phone line requires.

    That is what the front of the card looks like.20180702_190231.jpg

    The FCC ID indicates that the card is a Western Digital WD8000SH.

    Neat, it's a StarLAN board with an integral hub. That should make it easier to play with, if you decide to.
