NCU works well under OS 9. That's my setup.

If you get something like a DSL-Ethernet router, then you would be able to setup
a small Ethernet network, meaning all computers on the network will be able to
access the internet simultaneously. For your Newton, you will need an Ethernet
card, like the Etherwave from Farallon. The only problem is that Farallon no
longer sells this card. You might be able to find one from time to time for
auction on eBay, or maybe Newton Classifieds, but that's pretty much it. I know
that there are other PCMCIA Ethernet cards that work in the Newton, but don't
have anything specific. Check the Newton Ethernet FAQ on Victor Rehorst's page
