Token Ring (really)

Well, found the XP drivers for the card (it's a Madge Smart MK4 PCI adapter,
not olicom as I thought).
Ndisgen seemed to work fine
After kldloading the resulting module, ifconfig shows:
ndis0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
media: Ethernet autoselect (100baseTX)
status: no carrier
It is connected though (via DB9, not RJ45). I don't see how you can specify
4mbps or 16mbps, attempting the oltr media types for example "UTP/4mbps"
says no such media type.
I am wondering if the ndisgen utility is only designed for ndis Ethernet
cards instead of my case - ndis token ring. :(

What is the last version of FreeBSD that your card was supported on?
Perhaps it would be worth firing up that older version. I know it's a long
shot but at least you would have access to the driver code that may actually
still work in the current version.
It would certainly make an interesting story if you sort it all out.
