I would appreciate a bit more info on this.  I have never done this.   I think 
what I really need is to cause the machine to invoke another configuration 
process for the network card, and that isn't happening.  I'm just now sure 
what to do to cause it to happen.  I was under the mistaken impression that 
it would be automatic but, of course, it wasn't, or I wouldn't be begging.
