If you can wait until the weekend, when I have a little more spare time at hand, I could rig up a test environment with an A1200HD and a PCMCIA networking card. I haven't used that kind of configuration in years, and it might take a bit to assemble all the bits and pieces.

A legal TCP/IP stack that support autoconfiguration (fire and forget style), faster that the rest and for an affordable price? Hell yes!

And how's the memory footprint?
The software itself needs about 260K of main memory, and you need to set aside some memory for the networking card's send/receive buffers. Each buffer is 1.5K in size, and you should need at least 8-16 buffers per queue. That gives 2 * 16 * 1.5K = 48K. Let's say a total of 360K minimum should give you a working TCP/IP stack.
