You also need to have the complete Newton internet enabler installed
as I recall. This would include the ethernet part.

Unfortunately this company (Lucent/Orinoco/Agere/Orinoco) went
through many iterations, and actually REUSED the name "Orinoco Gold"
card with a newer card that uses the Proxim chipset or some other
chipset which is apparently different then the original Lucent/Agere
Wavelan Gold card.

I fear you may have one of these as your above part # is nothing like
my Wavelan Gold card?
