Unless that's a v1 SMC2802W (PCI), it's got the Frisbee chipset in it.
At the bottom of this page it mentions that the current version (V2.0) of
both the PCI and PCMCIA cards are using the Frisbee chipset.
As for the 3Com, I'll look into it, if the version on Komplett is
definately Duette, i'll pick it up, thanks :)
