EDIT – **NOTE** – I didn’t see Ray’s above post until after I sent the info below.
I don’t know if there’s already a commercial module out there that uses the same pinout as the one Ray provides (but based on the more capable chip), so Ray might have to first design a new Ethernet module. From what Ray told me, the W5500 chip (https://www.wiznet.io/product-item/w5500/) is one that looks like it would be relatively easy to adapt the code to use.
I haven’t taken the cover off of the ethernet module that Ray provides, but I’m wondering if it’s this board inside:
If it is, then perhaps something like this could satisfy the hardware part of the equation:
