Are you going through a switch or anything? Some newer switches and
routers don't pass AppleTalk/EtherTalk through appropriately, so it
might be worth testing with a crossover ethernet cable direct to the
computer running NCX.

Are you able to install packages via another method? TCP/IP has always
worked well for me using NCX, so you could install DockTCP and attempt
a connection via TCP/IP instead of EtherTalk.

I use a Snow (Dual Ethernet) AirPort Base Station as well and it works
fine with my Melco/Buffalo AirCard and Hiroshi's WaveLAN drivers (and
I'm using 128-bit WEP, as well). Many people have DHCP issues when
using WiFi, especially if the wireless access point is passing through
the DHCP from another router, so you might try a manual config of the
IP, net mask, gateway, and DNS servers on your Newt.
