FWIW, a 10Base-T switch should work fine in those situations, though they're relatively rare compared to 10/100 or gigabit switches.  It's not the switch to which the embuggered Ethernet device objects (and I have a few Mac Ethernet cards of the above-described type with that problem), it's the negotiate.

If you can manually set the port speed, that's good, otherwise, you can force it by putting a hub/bridge/switch in between to force it to 10.
