Welcome here Chris :-)

Every Newton OS user knows Royce Walthrop ;-)
Sorry it really got factory reset. 

For your 3Com card, you need to install the FarallonEthernet.pkg driver (http://message-pad.net/Download/Drivers/EthernetCards/FarallonEthernet.pkg)
And if your card has the reference 3C589D (or 3C589, 3C589B, 3C589C) you must also add the patch 3comaddon.pkg (http://message-pad.net/Download/Drivers/EthernetCards/3comaddon.pkg).
On the other hand if your card has one of the following references (3CXE589DT, 3CXE589ET, 3CXE589EC) then you need the patch 3c589.pkg instead of 3comaddon.pkg (http://message-pad.net/Download/Drivers/EthernetCards/3c589.pkg).

Bienvenu par ici Chris :-)

Chaque utilisateur de Newton OS2 connait Royce Walthrop ;-)
Désolé il a vraiment été réinitialisé. 

Pour ta carte 3Com, il faut installer le pilote FarallonEthernet.pkg (http://message-pad.net/Download/Drivers/EthernetCards/FarallonEthernet.pkg)
Et si ta carte porte bien la référence 3C589D (ou 3C589, 3C589B, 3C589C) il faut également ajouter le patch 3comaddon.pkg (http://message-pad.net/Download/Drivers/EthernetCards/3comaddon.pkg).
Par contre si ta carte à une des références suivantes (3CXE589DT, 3CXE589ET, 3CXE589EC) alors il faut le patch 3c589.pkg à la place du 3comaddon.pkg (http://message-pad.net/Download/Drivers/EthernetCards/3c589.pkg).

> Hi everyone,
> I recently watched the "Love Notes to Newton" documentary, which rekindled an old love I've had of the MP2000/2100 for decades. I got lucky and found someone selling a 2100 locally at a very reasonable price, and for the first time (after wishing for 25 years!) I have my first Newton.
> Looking forward to catching up on 20+ years of Newton developments that I've missed out on. It came with a 56K modem and 4MB storage card, and I found a 3COM Etherlink III in my hardware stash... so hopefully it will be internet ready in a couple of days.
> I'm so glad to see this list has continued for so many years with ongoing research and contributions. The searchable listserv archive has been invaluable to me for researching some of the basic questions.
> ps: this has Royce Walthrop as a contact.. is that built into storage after factory reset, or do I have an old Newtontalk user's machine? :)
> Cheers,
