Both 16- and 32-bit versions of Micro-X work well with the WPI thru ethernet.
Forget it with a V.34 modem, however.  Unrelated to server choice, you can 
improve readability by making the WPI background grey, and using larger fonts, 
by customizing the Wpi file (described in the WPI Guide, chapter 11).
