AppleTalk via WLAN usually works, as does AppleTalk over Ethernet. It is
routing AppleTalk between WLAN and Ethernet that's the problem -- my old
graphite AirPort base station did support it, but my Netgear WLAN router
does not. But even if you cannot establish a connection between a Newton
with a WLAN card and a wired Mac, building a connection to an AirPort-
equipped Mac should work (with almost any type of WLAN router).
