WARNING: internal 10|100 PHY requires magjack hardware!
#2
Also a tip from personal experience:

Unless you consider yourself highly skilled at soldering, don't just buy the magjack alone. The pins on most models of these are too short for wire jumpers to make solid contact, and it is very difficult to solder deadbug style (wires direct to pins of the connector).

The smarter (and cleaner looking) way of doing it would be to purchase an RJ45 breakout board. Such a board is available from Sparkfun, as is the board with the connector presoldered.
