The DC board can talk to almost any USB device, but as with any USB device, you need a driver - modern ones are of course either built into the OS, or supplied on CD/online. If you wanted to use a WiFi or Ethernet adaptor on the beeb, you could, but you'd have to write the driver for it yourself.

If you're specifically interested in getting Ethernet on your Master, then there's a module available for the Econet slot, but it's more expensive than the DataCentre: http://sprow.co.uk/bbc/projects.htm#Ethernet (AFAIK, it's one of those network stack on a chip things).

In terms of reading BBC floppies, then IIRC, there's no need for special floppy reading hardware. The BBC's formats are pretty normal in terms of how they're written to the disk but it can be difficult to find a PC that has a well implemented floppy controller!

If you've got access to a 5.25" drive on a PC somewhere, then, say Omniflop (Windows) will create a disk image, a DFS image tool will pull your files off. There a few tools that'll do certain conversions, or you could just use the images with an emulator.

EDIT: is that a Cyrillic keyboard on that BBC Master?
