Well, crap. It arrived. It’s beautiful. It’s broken.
All the complicated stuff works, but plain old wired Ethernet doesn’t. Given that the wireless does work — Edgy Eft Knot 2’s installer gets it right straight off — it’s tempting to ignore the problem. I have wifi at work; I have wifi at home; in how many settings will I have an Ethernet jack and no wifi?
But, dammitall, a wired connection is just too important a contingency. I’m off to warranty hell.
