[NTLK] Connecting My MP2000U to Anything.

Are there two different types of serial plugs, the one on my newton cord seems to be different that the one on my old comps (newt cord is all prongs, comps seem to want a bar shape in the center)?

I've had some free time lately, and have been endeavoring to connect my Newt
to either of my comps (Macbook running 10.6.8 or Windows XP comp) or my wifi
to no avail. When I bought my Newt from eBay, it came with serial cable,
WaveLAN Bronze wifi card, and a memory card that appears to have the NIE2
suite.  I also purchased a serial to usb adapter.  When I connect it all up
to my comp NCX says it is listening for serial connections, but it is never
found.  When trying to connect to wifi, it replies that the DNS server is
not responding (ISP disagrees).
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
