PCMCIA? PCI? ISA?

10MBit? 100Mbit?

PCMCIA10MBit: 20EUR
PCI 10MBit: 10EUR
ISA: You give them away as free coasters =)

@odin

Restraining orders are just another way of saying I love you!

Sorry, not enuff details, eh?
PCI 10MBit, they should be coasters but Amithlon no support 100MBit (yet?)  These are so "obsolete" they are hard to find, I think, at least in the US.  Besides, if you have wideBand connection, 10 Mbit is no bottleneck for Internet.

as it is has an RTL8029, then it is 10MBit and I have never seen RTL8029 on a card for another slot than PCI ;-)

About the price, I do not know :-(

I would never buy such a card ... we can get an ok RTL8139 for about 50kr i Denmark (about 7$) :-D

True for most I guess :-D (unless you're really lucky). I share a cablemodem connect with 2 flatmates and we only have a 10MB LAN (which connects to the cable modem). Works like a treat, apart from the Lin*x server HD crash. It's now running BSD :-).

If you only use the server as a DHCP-server, then you should try Coyote Linux it only uses a Floppy disk and two NIC, and it work every time :-D I use it at 3 places (1xP100, 1xP120 and 1xPII233)

Here in Oz 8029 cards sell secondhand (I doubt you'd find a new one) for $5 or about $2.50USD. Selling 'em as you are you'd probably only get $5US for 'em.

Well, actually your comment is to be taken quite seriously. Altough in the past I've also been responsible for dumping complete XT systems (incl screen) in the dustbin. Not very healthy for the environment :-/.

They work with mediator boards on amiga's.  could use one. I have a 100Mbit card now  I use but have been wanting to see if the 8029 is more stable for me. PM me and maybe I can take one off your hands.
