you can tell this page was made by a geek...
any rational normal human being would have just listed the name of the corresponding types of cards next to the
device in the list. but this guy wants us to look up the numbers (lol)

legend corresponds to the network device needed

Network Options List
1 ) Built-in Multi-speed Ethernet: This model comes with an auto-sensing, multi-speed Ethernet jack, allowing you to connect directly to an Ethernet network (10BaseT up to 1000BaseT, depending on the model).
2 ) Built-in 10BaseT Ethernet: This model comes with a 10BaseT Ethernet jack, allowing you to connect directly to a 10BaseT network.
3 ) PCI card: This model has one or more PCI slots available for the installation of an internal network adapter.
4 ) Nubus card: This model has one or more full-size Nubus slots available for the installation of an internal network adapter. Full-size slots can accommodate either 12" or 7" Nubus cards.
5 ) 7" Nubus card: This model has one or more 7" Nubus slots available for the installation of an internal network adapter. 7" slots can accommodate only the smaller 7" size Nubus cards.
6 ) PDS card: This model has one or more PDS slots available for the installation of an internal network adapter. The different varieties of PDS card are designed differently and require cards of their specific type, so make sure you get the right one.
7 ) LC PDS card: This model has one or more LC PDS slots available for the installation of an internal network adapter. The different varieties of PDS card are designed differently and require cards of their specific type, so make sure you get the right one.
8 ) LC III PDS card: This model has one or more LC III PDS slots available for the installation of an internal network adapter. The different varieties of PDS card are designed differently and require cards of their specific type, so make sure you get the right one.
9 ) Comm Slot card: This model has a Comm Slot available for the installation of an internal network adapter. The different varieties of Comm Slot card are designed differently and require cards of their specific type, so make sure you get the right one.
10 ) Comm Slot II card: This model has a Comm Slot II available for the installation of an internal network adapter. The different varieties of Comm Slot card are designed differently and require cards of their specific type, so make sure you get the right one.
11 ) Transceiver: This model has an external AAUI port available for the connection of an AAUI-to-10BaseT Ethernet transceiver. There are other kinds of transceiver available (such as 10Base2 and 10Base5), so make sure you get 10BaseT. The AAUI is a trapezoidal port on the back similar in design to the monitor port, but slightly smaller.
12 ) SCSI Adapter: An adapter that connects to the Mac's SCSI port and provides a 10BaseT Ethernet port. These adapters are hard to find and only work with certain (usually older) Mac models, and so should be sought out as the last resort.
13 ) PowerBook SCSI Adapter: An adapter that connects to the PowerBook's SCSI port and provides a 10BaseT Ethernet port. These adapters are hard to find and only work with certain (usually older) PowerBook models, and so should be sought out as the last resort.
14 ) PCMCIA card: An adapter that you insert into the PCMCIA slot of a PowerBook. Note that there are different "types" of PCMCIA card, type I, type II, and type III. PowerBooks can use up to two type I or type II cards simultaneously, but only a single type III card.
15 ) CardBus PC card: An adapter that connects to the CardBus slot of a PowerBook. CardBus is an updated version of the PCMCIA slot with higher data transmission speeds. The CardBus slot is backwards compatible and also allows use of PCMCIA cards.
16 ) PowerBook PDS slot: A PowerBook PDS slot (primarily used in the 500 series) that enables it to use PCMCIA cards, including those with Ethernet capability. Note that the PowerBook PDS slot is not compatible with desktop Mac PDS slots.
17 ) AirDock: This model has an AirDock slot available for the installation of an internal AirDock network adapter. The AirDock adapter adds wireless Ethernet capability in proximity to an AirDock station.
18 ) SE/30 PDS card: A network adapter that occupies the internal expansion slot of a Mac SE/30. This kind of adapter is made only for this model.
19 ) SE PDS card: A network adapter that occupies the internal expansion slot of a Mac SE. This kind of adapter is made only for this model.
20 ) PB 1400 Slot: Internal slot on the PowerBook 1400 for 10BaseT Ethernet. Focus, Farallon, and Newer Tech made such cards.
