Dunno, doubt it, esp. if it's not just standard stuff and needs
special code. IIRC, most people use Crynwr's NE2000 there.

(quoting old email from Erwin):

qemu -L . -m 64 -hda freedos.img -boot c -hdb fat:c:\fat -net
nic,model=ne2k_pci -net user

BTW, what host OS are you planning to use QEMU? IIRC, most development
is targeted towards Linux. But our own Bernd often tries to use it
atop Windows. The latest Win32 (unofficial) build I can find (1.1.1-1)
is here, though I haven't tested it:

Never heard of it, but I'm far from network savvy. A quick search
shows these sites:

Online files to download (and print out) or actual physical copies?
