[NTLK] Problem with Farallon Ethernet PC Card

This Ethernet card is fully compatible with the Newton OS 2.1.  It uses the farallon.pkg to work with NIE.  Do you have farollon.pkg?  It will not work with other drivers such as morewifi.pkg.

Do you have the manual that came with the card?  If not, I could scan it and send it.

Which connector for the card do you have?  10baseT?  The 10baseT version comes with it's own two port hub on the cable.  It is normal that the LED on the 10baseT hub light up with the card is connected, but so save the battery charge, they turn off until data actually is transmitted.

>Newton recognise this card as ?Farallon Enet PC Card. I did proper setup etc. But card can?t get connection. Is it not a Newton software problem, >because other cards working fine on this Newton. Only this Farallon have problem. During trying get connection, the LED on card light up (and on >newtork switch too) only. That is all. Newton can?t connect.

>Any ideas? I tried install other packages with drivers but I have no luck. Should I try something else?
