ENC28J60 Module

I ordered an ENC28J60 module with ebay but the one I received looks a bit different than the one shown in the wiki:

EXTERNAL LINK 
Does anybody know how to connect this one to the vampire V500 V2+ expansion header? I then tried lightinthebox.com, but received the very same model once more...

So far I found out, that this module should be compatible with both 3.3V and 5V and that 'Q3' means 3.3V so I probably should connect it like VCC (port 2). I can see how to connect SO, CS, SCK and GND, but am missing INT and SI.

I tried ST as SI and LNT as INT, but it didn't work.
Can anybody help?

8 (MISO) to (So)
1 (MOSI) to (ST)
3 (nCS1) to (CS)
6 (CLK) to (SCK)
5 (IRQ) to (LNT)
7 (GND) to (GND)
2 (+3.3V) to (Q3)

I Have the same Modul.

I suspect that this will be a recurring question as the manufacturers of these modules seem to be mislabeling them, or perhaps inaccurately labelling is more correct.  LNT seems to me like INT (interrupt) but the person responsible could distinguish between "I" and "T". "SI" being mistaken for "ST" also looks like a similar case.  Sounds like they were less than competent with the Latin character set.

I saw that Arananet was prototyping something that looked like an ENC28J60 and USB module for the V2.  Does anyone know more about this?  A picture of the board was pasted on IRC some time back.  It seems to me that a purpose built board with a connector that aligns perfectly with the ExpPort on the V2 would eliminate these kinds of issues.

I can't get it to work. I connected it like Daniel said, the red diod on the module is on but when I run 'sdnettest' the output is:

starting
Ok. vampire.resource present
Ok. vampire.resource port 0 allocated
Fail. Cannot read chip rev at speed 10
Fail. Cannot read chip rev at speed 9
...
Fail. Cannot read chip rev at speed 0
Fail. No response from revision command.
      Check ENC28J60 power supply and cabling.

What should the ouput be? What could I have done wrong besides the cabling (I checked it over and over again)?

I have installed core GOLD 2.9 and SAGADrivers 1.3. Version of sdnet.device is 1.2, though. Is that normal?

I posted about this a month ago.
Give it a read, maybe it can help you.

There is a wiki page for setting up the ENC28J60: EXTERNAL LINK 
  If this doesn't match some of the modules then the wiki should be updated to save this kind of grief. Who updates the wiki?

That's what I proposed in my post :)

V2expeth.device in SAGADriver.v1.3.lha to be used.

V2expeth.device is removed Devs/Netvork draver. Miami init is easily connected.

What would the correct output of 'sdnettest' be? Can anyone give it a quick go, please?

@Haydar YÜKSEL
You saved my day!

For some reason I thought I had to use the netinterface 'sdnet'. But now, using 'V2expeth' it works, finally!

Thank you so much!!!

Maybe the wiki could be updated to state somewhere which netinterface to be used...
