L'enfer, C'est Le Laptop Repair Under Warranty

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.
