I have used Via Rhine and Realtek based network cards ok on Linux. I am sure I bought them from ebuyer as well and on the product specs, they list whether they work with Linux.

Isn't the type of the chip used by the card listed somewhere on the device or documentation. This usually gives you an idea about which drivers to use.
