I paid 35USD+shipping for my 3Com 3c562B and haven't had any problems
with it; I found the reseller on Pricewatch. It's a 16-bit card with
10Mbps ethernet (same chip as 3c589) and a 28.8kbps modem. The dongle
is rather large though, since it has both BNC and RJ45 jacks. AFAIK,
the card is out of production, which would explain why it was so
