    I bought this 3Com card on eBay for ~$15 (with US shipping) this
month. The seller - odiguys - seems to have now only the 10/100 Mbps
cards which won't work in a Newt.

    Maybe you could try emailing them if they still have some available?
They were selling them in batches of 10, but I think I was the only bidder.

    Big thanks to John Goggan once again!
