You mean that occasionally, when you boot, it doesn't work ? Now what if
you try using eth2 in that case, does it work ?
WHat I noticed is that occasionally (but not all the time) I get a bogus
eth1 interfacec that I blame on the firewire networking code. Thus
airport ends up being moved "elsewhere"
