New ethernet card

Yesterday this server lost it’s network connection and could not get an IP address from MIT. It had been working fine with no strange messages in the system log files. I suspected a problem with the Ethernet jack in my room or the switch in the building, but after a bunch of troubleshooting I determined that the Ethernet card was no longer working. Along with most of the rest of this computer, it has now been replaced and the computer is back online.
