If I understand correctly, you can't get Ethernet/NIE working? I was in a
similar situation; to solve it I did a deep reset and re-installed NIE. I
found Apple's directions a little confusing and I kept installing packages
in the wrong order.

To make the installation easier, I re-named all my NIE/Ethernet packages
so the first number indicates the order in which to install. Please
install with your Ethernet card *removed* from Newton.

The packages, in order, are:


After these dudes are on, slip your NIC in and things should be fine.
For the 3COM cards, when you insert it, the Newton won't do anything. If
you're not using a Farallon or 3COM card, you may need to get another
driver. I suspect you could tag the driver "8_<insert_name_here>.pkg" and
install it after the others...

As I have mentioned before, I use Tactile's FTP client to check if TCP/IP
& NIE are setup properly. When it doesn't work, I know something is
seriously wrong...

Good luck!
