A full length Zorro II network card (RTL8019AS). Unlike the original Ariadne, the Ariadne II does not have additional parallel ports, but does have support for an optional boot rom. The card also has an LED on the back which displays the LINK status for 10BaseT networks. On the card itself it has 3 LED connectors for LINK, RX and TX. There is also an I/O connector however there is no mention by Village Tronic what this is for.

**Make sure the MNI driver for the Ariadne-II is the latest version available as early versions had support for the Ariadne II disabled.

Oliver Gerler has worked out what the function of the I/O ports on the Ariadne II are (VillageTronic never released this info). Details can be found here
