Of course there's a NIC. The driver has no special handling for IP27 and
is capable of reading the NICs on some machines at least. That would be
a rather suprising ability if there was no NIC associated with that IOC3 ;-)
(A while ago I recall a few second hand Origins were being sold on eBay
with NICs removed ...)

All information that I have says only INTA is being used for IP27. It
will probably take a bit of testing.
I haven't yet had any complaints about keyboard and mouse being non-
functional on IP27 - even though my Origin has 4 keyboard and 4 mouse
