ENC28J60 Stand-Alone Ethernet Controller with SPI Interface to it?
I've been casting around for a reasonably cheap Serial-to-Ethernet
converter, so I can hook the Tracker2 up to the radio remote from the
PC. Haven't found one that would be considered inexpensive once
currency conversion and freight costs to ZL get factored into the mix.
It'd be nice to hook a ENC28J60 direct to a Tracker2, and maybe
emulate the AGW port 8000 interface, but I don't know
what code space requirements would be - maybe a bit much for it.
I'll be quiet now, lest I give you ideas & distract you from your
website development :)

With the microchip product, you have to implement the bottom three layers of the network stack, in addition to your application layer.
