Yeah, it's more likely the NPDS server. You mentioned that you've
turned off NPDS Watcher because it was causing problems for you, but
it's usually necessary to reboot NPDS and/or your Newton when you lose
your connection.

I'm not actually running NPDS at this time, but maybe Grant, Ron, or
the others running NPDS servers right now have suggestions.
