I know this is no ebay-platform, but perhaps this may be interesting to some users:
But I read so many issues about realtek and other NICs and people having problems with those…
So for these guys living in Europe:
I have a couple of 3Com 905TX(M) NICs here that I do not need any more...
Most of them are new.
They work pretty fine with pfSense and are much better than RealTek, ...
If any pfSense user needs some of these, write me am PM.
I thought of perhaps round about 10,- € per piece...
If they are 3c905b's they are probably the best 10/100's ever made. If they're 3c905c's I wouldn't touch them with a solar system sized pole.
The 3c905c's are die shrunk and half-height cards. The 3c905b's have BIG .26 micron chips, lots of capacitors for line stability, and are 3/4 height cards. The model should be silk screened on the top of the card near the back of the card.
I have both of them, but I like the b's better, too :-)
