I'll second Jason's email. I have a 3com 3c905TX working beautifully in my
lowly axppci33. It is must faster than the realtek based (DFE-538TX) that
was in there before.

ex0 at pci0 dev 11 function 0: 3Com 3c905C-TX 10/100 Ethernet with mngmt
(rev. 0x78)
ex0: interrupting at isa irq 9
ex0: MAC address 00:04:75:8a:cc:88
exphy0 at ex0 phy 24: 3Com internal media interface
exphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto

I paid about 60$CAN for it, and I am sure you can do better.
