I got an 8139 card for my mom's 6500 for $5 on ebay. They have OS9 drivers too of course.

I also saw someone selling a ETHERNET CARD FOR A MAC 6500 for $60+.. folks bid it up there. If you put "MAC" in the title, folks think its specific and bid. Unfortunate.

I'm using the MacSense FE551 card on my Gossamer. It's Made for Mac but until I found the said realtek driver, the card won't work under OS X. Now it is working flawlessly.

I want to point out that the reverse might be true if you use a "cheap" card. It will work under OS X, but you probably can't use it under OS 9.
