My guess is that your Newton cannot reach the wireless network.
Indeed, if you have an automatic setup, the first thing the Newton
will do is to try to reach the DHCP server and if you have a manual
setup, it will instead directly try to reach the DNS servers to
resolve the name of the host you try to contact.

Check the LEDs of the card. The Lucent has two LEDs, one should be
green, stable (not blinking) to mean that it connected to the
network. Check the WEP settings. Disable WEP on both sides. Double
check the SSID setting.
