i don't know if it should stay on or not. i've never had a Newton (or
any other PDA, ftm) on the ethernet.

here's what happens, step by step.

* Newton on, card goes in (with 'pigtail' and wired)
* Slip comes up recognizing card as "Megahertz 589E" (awesome!)
* Light on the pigtail stays on for approx. 10 seconds
  (light on the hub showing connection also says on for 10 sec)
* when i try to use a NIE-enabled app, like newtVNC, the connection slip
  opens, and i choose the ethernet connection i created with my static
  IP and stuff.
* none of the apps actually DO anything. the lights on the tail and hub
  stay off, and my hub sees no traffic from that address.

:( i want my Newtonian Ethernet!
