Ok... so, the OEM WaveLAN PC Card pictured in your post with the short PCB will work in the Newton (works in standard PC Card Slot), but Apple's original Airport card, and all other Apple Airport cards, have a different pin configuration that is not compatible with standard PC Card slots. Thus, Apple Airport cards are precluded from being used in standard PC Card slots, and, by implication, will not work in the Newton.

Is this correct. And if so, do you have a OEM WaveLAN PC Card with the short PCB? Any ideas where to get them? Have you thought about internal wifi? If so, I can see that the internal antennae would have to have the antennae plug hanging out of the PC Card cage in order for it to plug into the Wifi card.
