Seriously, some way or another, you need a piece of hardware to connect the A500 to a network, beeing either a plip-box, a router board connected to the serial port (mine was dirt cheap, easy to set up, and even has FTP server built in), a PC functioning as a SLIP gateway via serial cable, ethernet zorro board hacked into the side-connector, or other solutions I'm unaware of.

I wanted a standalone solution for network, and the router board is only one possible solution for implementing a standalone network adapter, the plip-box is another.
