I'm not sure if its related. I just know that the PCs we have trouble 
with typically are foreign language PCs. The last one was English but 
from Australia and still using his timezone. Im just looking for 
differences that might explain it.

I dont remember.. it was a network error page IIRC.. but the machines 
did get an IP from the WAP etc...

Since I have to wait for another problem PC to come in for me to test 
and they dont always let me test very much, are there some logs I can check?
