I can recommend MAGMA products ( ) -
I use an LC 2+1 Sp ( ) with
an IPX.
NetBSD has drivers but I am currently using it with SunOS 4.

NetBSD 1.4/1.5 handle a 56k on built-in serial ports without problems in
my experience on SS1/SS1+  with ipf & ipnat (at full throughput,
interrupt load seems to be 30-50% according to systat but no evidence of
overruns, unlike SunOS 4).
