The Intel ATOM is a great board but we have one issue. When we simulate a power loss and then re-apply the power the unit does power up and our application loads but the network port is not detected by the network switch. We have tried different settings in the BIOS and uploaded software issue 0029 but without success. Does anyone have a suggestion on what to try?

OK ... try this. The bios is not your problem (I'm pretty sure). The network port is driven by the network set-up in the original OS disk ... somehow the network software is not following thru. To mend this 1. go to the bios and set the first ... Intel PC Desktops

I have to push the power switch repeatedly and with a certain interval after the last attempt (a matter of seconds) before I can persuade the laptop to spring into life.
