Hi Roman,

Welcome back to the community. Wikiwikinewt doesn't work right now, but is archived at thewaybackmachine. Here is a list of software you can use to get started with. Not sure if anybody has written a start-to-finish setup guide.

Newton Internet Enabler packages

Hiroshi's wifi driver: released as freeware in 2007

Web browsers of choice
Newt's Cape: typically the most feature complete browser
Net Hopper and patches: my second choice for browsing
Courier: no images, no forms, just text and really fast

Simplemail: precursor to MailV. Preferred if you are using only POP3
