Hello.. well my on going project to write a TCP/IP stack on a pic is still "on going" and with the holodays here I'm going to get a good chunk of it out of the way.
I'm still using slip to connect it to my PC, but recently I'v come to realize how much simpler life would be if I used 10baseT Ethernet. Basicaly because the chips that deal with this have more memory for packets then the pic does !
Any way. I have searched around and found this one
But the price of US$80 is a bit off-putting, seeing as I can pick up a complete PCI card from DickSmith (AKA RadioShack) for $10-15 nowdays.
I've found others that use old ISA NIC's but I'd rather use something else.
So does any one know of other solutions, for embedded mcus that dont cost so much?
I know, I know, TCP/IP done a thousand times before on a PIC. but I'm doing it to learn, not to be new.
