Hi Tim,

Getting an ethernet card setup is at first seem challenging.  There  
are some useful links you might like.
First the Newton error database
Your error code

But more importantly is Frank Gruendel's Site with instructions.

I recommend following his directions carefully and in order.
Once you get setup, that card if I recall correctly is identified as  
"3Com 3C589D PC Card" on the card list.

When attempting to many modern routers it may take sever attempts to  
get an IP address, but in my experience it will connect.

Good luck
