I have used RTEMS to implement an advanced networking product. This
development predates the TCP/IP additions, and used a custom zero copy
buffer pool, and custom MAC layer drivers. We only operated at the MAC
layer so did not worry about the TCP/IP. This product is well into
production and use, and RTEMS has proven stable.

We now have some smaller ethernet based products which use the TCP/IP.
Our customers report no problems. What they do want is stability and
compliance to the RFC's. The BSD stack provides both. 

Good luck.
