This is just a matter of price.. The more you pay, the more you get.

3com 905-tx(nm) A-C series, works good in Linux however - you need mii-diag.c
in order to control Full-Duplex/Half-Duplex and linkspeed... (autoneg doesnt
always work properly).

Intel Etherexpress Pro (+ Server Adapter) works great and i havnt found Autoneg
issues, however -- this chip got lots of bugs in it, but the drivers have

D-Link cant do constant load, they hang or just loose ability to talk to other
hosts on the network.
