Mine is an Amiga 2500 and came with a 68020 or something I think. So it 
wouldn't work for me either.

iComp.de has Zorro slot ethernet boards as do others. The software stack 
just seems so messy I haven't thought about going there yet. I'm not an OG 
Amiga user. I was an Atari 8bit/DOS dude and still don't understand some 
of the low level workings of the drivers and extensions and stuff on the 

I have some laser show hardware and software and the software says the 
hardware isn't found, never been able to figure that one out either.
