Thanks for the welcome Woody,

So it looks like connecting via Serial is a bust :(

Okay I'm now trying to use WiFi. I've got a Lucent Turbo Silver card
and configured it exactly as at:

However, and you knew this was coming, I can't get the Newton to find
my Mac.

(Appletalk is enabled on the Mac in OS9 and MacOSX, WiFi is enabled
on the Mac. My wireless router is a Belkin which takes the IP number, the Mac has been allocated, DHCP has been
set to automatic)

When I try to use the Newton's Dock, I select [Appletalk] and then
[Connect to...] [Other computer...] The WiFi card becomes active
(hurrah!), but the Newton never finds another MacOS computer (boo!)

Sorry, I know this is sounding really dumb - but what am I doing wrong?
