00:04:5A is listed to linksys, it should be possible to identify as 
LNE100TX if required. IIRC 00:04:5A is only on newer LNE100TX's, older 
model LNE100TX's with Centaur-P use 00:20:78.

It may be possible to use the MAC to specifically identify other cards 
that have unique tweaking requirements... may not be possible to uniquely 
identify every single card in existence, but should be possible to 
identify at least some.
