Other than that, what are the advantages and disadvantages of each?
If you have to ask, you probably should get the w5100.
So you think the ENC28J60 is so unimpressive that it is not worth leaning it's features.
No, the ENC28J60 apears to require advanced programming and knowledge skills which might be an issue.
-- I'll second that as I am a newbie. I have both the enc28j60 and the W5100 and I feel the w5100 has a better standard library as well as easier to understand examples. ...
@Wendy,Unfortunately your links only include very few information. For example, there is no clear diagram with connector pinouts.The 5100 board includes a 5V-3V3 regulator, but can it be used with a 3V3 supply as well ?
it seems w5100 costs4 dollar(as per the following link)http://www.saelig.com/product/ETH014.htm

I have both the enc28j60 and the W5100 and I feel the w5100 has a better standard library as well as easier to understand examples. ...So the basic problem is that the library for W5100 is better and easier to use than anything available for the ENC28J60. There are several libraries for the ENC28J60 but none of them adequately abstract the functionality such they can be easily included in a sketch.
