Sorry about the lateness of my reply, I just got back from vacation and am
catching up on all my NewtonTalk reading.

You say you got your 2.0 120 working with this card? All of the NICs for
the Newton so far have only worked with NOS 2.1 devices and NIE 2.0. Does
this card support TCP/IP (NIE) connections as well as AppleTalk?

As for getting the driver to work with your 2100... I assume you have NIE
2.0 installed. You might want to try installing all of the optional NIE
packages first (Newton Devices, NIE Ethernet etc. - they should all be on
your 2100 CD)

If that still fails, try downgrading to NIE 1.1, or even removing NIE
all together. Have you tried both card slots?
