Ethernet card recommendations for MacII

We have made it a practice to use external SCSI Ethernet boxes,
which are available from several vendors at about $275, with
all Macs without multiple internal slots.  Communications are
said to be a bit slower than with an internal card, but the
single slot of MacIIsi's is saved for other purposes, and we
have maximum flexibility to switch and upgrade processors.
