You need two pieces of software: A Client and a Host.

The Client software (on the Newton) is typically the Dock. It could also be the NTK Toolkit app.

The Host software can be several choices depending on your setup and hardware/software available. With OS X and a single ethernet source (broadband wireless router}, you probably want to look at NCX.

It sounds like you need to look into an Ad Hoc connection.

If you can run Classic, have a built in ethernet and an Airport card in your Mini, you can use NCU or NBU or NTK as your Host.

Check out this PDF. You may be able to adapt the idea to your needs.
