Hi, I'm new to the Newton and to this list (this is my first post,
though I've been reading for a while)
I'm in the market for a network card that will end the headaches of
hassling with my current serial connection, but I'm not sure which
cards work, and which ones are better than others.

I've looked at the FAQ and have been searching ebay for a listed
card, but they're hard to find and often surprisingly expensive ...
any suggestions of other cards that work? Also, of the cards listed,
do any work better (ie: easier and more stable) than others?
