[NTLK] Taking another swing at my Newton

I go everything installed, and followed all of the instructions.  However using either Corior or NetHopper, I am unable to Internet.  On NetHopper I get error -60088 which UNNA tells me means that my ISP won't give my Newton DHCP and I won't be able to Internet.  Is that the end of the line?

Here is a pic that shows all of the things currently installed on my Newton:

To clear out all network specific packages then here is what I see.

NIE and network specific packages:
802.11b Wavelan
Internet Setup
Newton Devices
Newton Internet
NIE Internet
NIE LocalTalk
NIE Modem & Serial
NIE Patch

Other network-ish apps that support Courier:
NHttplib Test

NHCharsets:DPR (I think is an extension for NetHopper, which I don't see installed. Probably safe to delete.)

Since Newton-to-Computer connection is working for you I highly suggest making a system backup before deleting everything. You never know what might happen.
