Hi Victor,
Thank you so much for yur help. I am even more appreciative especially since it is Thanksgiving.
I have tried your suggestion but I still continue to experience the same error message, that it couldn't resolve IP Address
I entered the local IP address for my Newton as
Gateway as
Incidentally, I manually entered into my router the Primary DNS/Name server address you see on both the router and Newton. Does this impact it?
Also, I received feedback that this card, Lucent WaveLan (bronze) being a "b" card is not compatible with "g" networks.

The IP address and gateway address you put into your newton should NOT be the
same as the numbers in your router!

Your Newton needs a separate IP address. Think of it this way - if both your
Newton and your Router had the same address, how would anything determine
which computer they were talking to?

If your router supports DHCP for configuration, then use it. I don't think
your manual configuration is anywhere near correct.

If DHCP won't work (ie. SimpleMail complains as you say or you get a -60088
error) I think you should change your manual setup on the Newton as follows:

Local IP Address: (anything but .254)
Gateway Router Address: (this is your router's local IP, and
we need to use your router as a gateway to the internet)
