Thanks for the info Tim. Unfortunately, I don't think that's the problem
in this case as I've physically removed the NIC from the computer (and
power) on a number of occasions, and the problem is still occurring.

I'll definitely tuck this away as something to look out for when I get
around to dealing with clients that are new enough to have onboard NICs.

As for the Asus boards, I did find a few other NICs that are working
with K12LTSP, so my next step is to try those with the Asus board to see
if it isn't a problem with that combination of hardware.
