What seems wrong to me in this setup is the mismatch between the Local
IP Address and the Gateway/Router Address -- they appear to be on two
different subnetworks, 10.0.x.x and 192.168.x.x. To have the Newton
attempt a connection to the internet, its local IP address must be in
the same subnet of the router. Therefore, if the router's IP address
in your home network is actually, I think you should try
giving the Newton an IP address like 192.168.0.x, where x can be a
number in the 1-254 range.

If the router's IP address is actually that one, I'd leave the DNS/
Name server address just like you set it.

Hope this helps a bit.
