[NTLK] Wireless patch install, Newton Press and WEP woes

Have you set the wireless network to 'Open' rather than 'Shared' on your wireless router ? The Newton won't do the key exchange that happens when you start a connection to a wireless network that is set to 'Shared'...

Thanks Ron, grabbing the y2010 patch from a website worked like a charm. Easiest 
thing I've done on the Newton setup so far! I can now use the Dates app (app? 
Package? Extension?) and have the correct time and date on posts ;-). I had read 
about setting up a web server for package downloads on the Egg Freckles or My 
Apple Newton blog. I've set up one one on my OSX box but Nethopper complains 
it's lacking a text plugin because of the way OSX 'helpfully' sets up a landing 
page. I'll try it on the XP partition. 

I'll look again at Newton Press using your tips and tutorial, Dan. If it can 
produce full page views it IS better than Paperback. I must have missed 
something first time around. 

Woody, I've tried the WEP key as hex and string, "use WEP" checkbox ticked, to 
no avail. I'm using Hiroshi's driver (unregistered) with an Orinoco Silver Card 
(Lucent). The wifi network is 64 bit encrypted WEP and the card says 
"Encryption: WEP 64" on the back.
