    Or you can try to uninstall then reinstall the TCP/IP stack.

    IBM Laptops can have the "IBM Access Connections Software" installed, which controls the network card settings.  There could be a profile set in that which is getting reapplied.

    Good call. That's very possible too. Is automatically switching enabled if the user has that on the machine? If not, what profile is selected by default?
