Help need. Some network programs for DOS just lockups. (Miscellaneous)

Hard to say where can be the problem. My first idea - some unsupported instruction in the used network library (Watt32) for your CPU.
Maybe I am wrong but I thought that newer builds of Watt32 are compiled for 686+ processors with instructions like CMOVxx.
But I am even not sure whether your processor (STPC Elite 133Mhz), although marked as i80486 compatible, knows the new 486 instructions like BSWAP or XADD.

But maybe I am wrong and the problem is elsewhere. First - try more DJGPP+Watt32 programs. I uploaded the testing binaries for Watt32

As a next step try to replace the default DPMI server to an alternative.
The easiest is the use the HDPMI32 server from the HX-DOS package by Japheth.
(commandline is HDPMI32 -r)
After loading such DPMI server try to run your problematic binaries again.
