I have a NuvoLink SC box on my IIcx, and it has worked perfectly for
about a year, now.  I got the box, instead of a card, because at the
time I had an SE and expected to move up. If there is some chance you
will be changing machines, I think the box is an excellent investment. 

I use the following software: 
MacTCP, which I got free with Eudora, as my router.
Eudora, which I got free with MacTCP :-), as my mail program.
Nuntius for news.
Fetch for FTP.
TurboGopher for Gopher.
NCSA Telnet (MacTCP version) for the increasingly rare occasions in
which I need to log on to another machine. 

You will probably note something that all of the above programs have in
common:  they are free!
