As expected, was also pricey but really worth it.

Oh, looks interesting
Intro retro computers since before they were retro...
ZX81->Spectrum->Memotech MTX->Sinclair QL->520STM->BBC Micro->TT030->PCs & Sun Workstations.
Added code to the MiNT kernel (still there the last time I checked) + put together MiNTOS.
Collection now with added Macs, Amigas, Suns and Acorns.

@stephen_usher @rubber_jonnie

Yeah, it's better to have a RJ45 than a BNC connector.

My desktop will look neater now.

I now have to sell the previous podule, the BNC/RJ45 adapter and the BNC cable as I have no use of them anymore.

I kept my BNC stuff, I potentially have other things that I might need it for. Given how rare these NICs are, it's likely you'll sell it for a good price.

Hmm... I could do with a network MiniPodule for my A4000.

10Base2 is no problem for me as I have a 3Com OfficeConnect TP4C (https://docs.rs-online.com/34b7/0900766b80028529.pdf) mini-hub with co-ax (and AUI) plus 10BaseT... oh, and a big 3Com splitter/repeater box and loads of cable and terminators. :-)
