Farallon had one which should work. It was actually OEM'd from SONIC
Systems. I used to use the Sonic version on a Duo 280c under 8.1.

You might also have good luck (at least under 7.5.5 or earlier) with a
DaynaPORT Ether/SC. As I recall, it is not OpenTransport compatible.

Do you want it on your home network for file sharing via AppleTalk or are
you planning to try and surt the web, etc. If you just want AppleTalk, you
could also look for some kind of LocalTalk-to-EtherTalk bridge and use the
printer port, no?
