[NTLK] NCX and Wifi

I tried to connect an N2000 using an Orinoco Silver Wifi card to my 
macbook pro using NCX. The connection was hopelessly flakey and dropped 
like every two seconds. Then the newton was left kind of messed up with a 
strange error message if I tried to run any other application. A soft 
reset, as in just pushing the button on the back, cured that.
Anyone seen this problem? It sure would be cool to hook my newton to a 
modern macbook w/o a dongle.

Networking using this card seems ok in PT100 and Newtscape.

The only successful way I can get stuff into the newton is using IRDA on 
my old OS 9 Lombard powerbook.  I'm backing up to a card for the time
