Thank you very much for your prompt reply.
My "network", if you could call it that, is wide open. I don't believe I am running WEP (how would I check?). I am almost certain, since my neighbour sometimes is using my connection.....
I could be wrong. But I should check.
Anyone can use my internet connection. Generous aren't I?
So, what do you mean by the settings for the card? Are you referring to the POP/ SMTP settings? I listed those below in my posting, if that is the case.
The only icon I can see is one called "802.11b WaveLan". No mention of the card by name that is Lucent Wavelan. When I click on that icon it says "Package name Lucent WaveLan:Noguchi Version 1.06 Copyright 2002 Hiroshi Niguchi. All rights reserved."
Must be it.
Do I have the right driver?
Thanks for sending me a lifeline, Dave.

One of the first things to check would be does your Newton have
"permission" to join the wireless network? By that I mean, is your
network set up so that only machines whose MAC addresses are listed in
the router's configuration? If so, then all you'll need to do is add
the Newt's MAC address to the list, which you can find on the back of
the Lucent card.
Second thing to check is are you using WEP encryption? If so, then the
issue might be that your card either doesn't support it (true of all
cards for the Newton if the encryption is WPA, true of some cards if it
is WEP-128). The Lucent Silver cards only support WEP-64 out of the
box, unless they've been upgraded to support 128-bit. So this could
also be the issue.
If your wireless network is wide open (no encryption), and unrestricted
(anyone can join, without needing to match on a list of allowed MAC
addresses), then the problem likely lies in the configuration of your
Wireless card. If you run the Card package on the Newton, you'll see
your card. If it's a Lucent, you should see a Setup button. Picking
this will take you to the configuration for the card. Has it been
properly set up for YOUR network, or does it still have the settings
from the previous owner.
Those things should give you a good start at figuring out what the
problem might be. Be as specific and detailed as you can, and we'll
help you through. No Newton owner with a working Wireless card
(supported by Hiroshi's driver) should be without wireless
functionality. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
