Get a hub. Trust me. Besides being an easy solution to your needs,
it'll be FAR, FAR, FAR faster than a serial connection to the ethernet.

You should be able to get a 5 port hub for well under US$50. Although if
you have a static IP address you'll need to request a second one (you
won't be able to use it on the Newton and the PC at the same time.)
