UPDATE (2018.08.25): I just get another Farallon Ethernet PC Card. And this new card working fine. So, the first card must be broken.

Some time ago I bought on eBay network card for Newton. Farallon Ethernet PC Card (EtherWave and EtherMac – PN895). I always thought that Farallon card are the best for Newton. But this card surprised me a lot. I just can’t setup and run it!

Newton recognise this card, but card can’t get proper connection. I did couple tests on different Newton units to check if drivers working correctly (sometimes NewtonOS can have problems, especially if you want to use many different drivers for a lot of LAN/WiFi cards).

So, at this point I’m not sure where is the problem, because there is only one driver for NewtonOS (Farallon driver) and Newton recognise this card properly. What if funny, I have similar problem with old 3Com Etherlink III (3C589D) card. I’m not sure why I can’t run it properly. And Newton don’t show info window for this 3Com card.

Weird. I must do the research…
