All the browsers you mention can download and install packages.
While I don't recommend nethopper you can improve its functioning with  
Daniel Padilla's (ZNHPatch, NHCarsets, NetHopperJPEG)

Regarding NCX are you using the internet/ethernet (ethernet dock)  
package from the NCX download on your Newt?
But whether it or TCP/IP I find it to be stable. Try reinstalling NCX
