[clug-talk] Lost network after logging out

There must be something deeper than that though.  At startup, everything
is normal.  It stays normal until I log out.  When I log back in, that's
when things go funny.  But I don't lose the entire connection.  I still
have a connection to the Internet, but not the LAN.

I'll keep following what the log is reporting.  I won't rule out
hardware either.  I'll try to get a different card and test that.

Thanks,
John
