It is true that this has been a problem for many. Connectivity to your mac/pc is most important. Ethernet connection to the mac is posible via Simon Bell's NCX.
You will need to get the drivers installed. I or others can loan you a flash card with needed drivers.
If you are using a pc get the cable from jksales.
This will still not get the keyboard connected, But this is less important. I bought the SER 001 for my keyboard but with handwriting rec. I don't use it.

6. Ethernet (wireless or wired). People seem to have good success here, but I've only seen it used to access the internet on the Newton. Can a Newton Connection Utility transfer be utilized over ethernet? The only caveat is that it appears drivers need to be loaded before it works, which presents a chicken or the egg scenario. Plus, I can't use this method to communicate with the keyboard. Compatible ethernet cards do appear to be cheap and plentiful.
Have I missed something obvious? Are there other cheaper sources for the SER-001 board, for example? Or perhaps a vendor for the interconnect dongle?
Any advice is appreciated. Cheers.
