It's a Turbo Silver (the one in the graphite Airport base stations).

This is interesting - when I installed More WiFi, the Newton gave me
an error message that said Hiroshi's driver and Lantern/Newton
Devices had to be installed, even though both of those packages were
already on the Newton. It installed More WiFi anyway, but it hasn't
helped anything. It sounds like I have everything installed that's
supposed to be, but for some reason the Newton refuses to recognize
the card.
