I personally prefer the Digi One SP. Been using those for over a decade, about 3-4 dozen, and have had only 1-2 die.
They also make a WiFi version (as does Lantronix) for even greater simplicity, and no eth cable required.

The Lantronix UDS10 was replaced by the UDS1100 & UDS1100-PoE.  They 
start at $120 new and work better on modern networks.

But there are cheap serial to Network solutions out there.  (Many for 
$50 or less.)
