>From 'lspci' I think the i340 is this:

01:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation 82580 Gigabit Network Connection [8086:150e] (rev 01)
	Subsystem: Intel Corporation Ethernet Server Adapter I340-T4 [8086:12a2]

I don't have the 2- or 4-port version of a PRO/1000 installed anywhere
at the moment, but I think a 1-port (PCI, not PCIe) looks like this:

00:08.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Intel Corporation 82541PI Gigabit Ethernet Controller [8086:107c] (rev 05)
	Subsystem: Intel Corporation PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter [8086:1376]

Fwiw I'm almost positive I used older incarnations of PRO/1000 in NetBSD
before, but I couldn't say which versions; I know I've done in FreeBSD,
