Ethernet for 5500/225 - Mac Networking

Just got given a PowerPC 5550/225 with a modem in the comm slot - no ethernet card - OS is 8.1. What's the cheapest way for me to get this connected to a cable modem. I have read many posts talking about just using an 8139 PCI ethernet card but all the drivers I have seen are for OS8.5 and above. I don't really want to have to upgrade the OS unless it's absolutely necessary. Thanks, Eric...

    Hello,

    I'am no expert but i do think that you need to upgrade your OS
    in order to get it connected via cable and setting things up
    in 8.6 is really easy too.

    (I have a 5500/225 myself with OS 8.6 installed and a PCI
    ethernet card + cable).
