Well, you sure need the drivers but once they are configured there is
nothing to do anymore, even though you hop from LAN to LAN. So first
you go to, download the following packages to your Newton:

- NIE 2.0 /apple/software/Internet/NIE2
- Farallon driver /drivers/ethernet/farallon (farallon.pkg, you don't
need the Etherwave package, unless you have the WLAN card)
- 3com add-on drivers /drivers/ethernet/3com (both packages)

Then open up the NIE setup application, choose "New" then Generic
setup. Choose the Ethernetcard from the pick list and the DHCP
setting. That is all there is to it. Now you you can plug your Newton
into 90 % of all Ethernet networks with out any further ado. You
should be able to use Internet and eMail from this.

Hope this was a good enough explanation to make it work.
