It's an ActionTec running a DataBook chipset. Supported by Linux and
NetBSD, FreeBSD support may be there by now (it was in -CURRENT) the
last time I looked, but I didn't want to a non-release version.

It's actually an older model and could probably be found cheap on eBay.
I don't know where this one originally came from. At one point, all the
PCs in the lab here were equipped with them (for a project involving
FORTEZZA cards, I believe), but many were stripped out as the PCs were
upgraded to PCI-only motherboards.
