Probably not helpfull, since the NetStation we have predates the
aquisition by intel in 2001. There was a www.xircom.com url on the bottom,
which redirected to the intel site.  Unfortunatly I can't find any relevent
specs on the intel site.

Unfortunatly there's very little info about the NetStation on their site.

If I can find out how many volts and amps it takes on which pins, I can
get it working.  We've got an assortment of AC->DC power supplies sitting
around, so I can probably just wire one up.  If not, I can find one fairly
