I haven't tried the older kernel, is there a suggestion on which particular
one I should try? I'm also not too clear about how I would go about testing a
diff. kernel...

The network's fine, as restarting rcdhclient temporarily solves the problem.

'pidof dhclient' didn't return anything, nor did 'pidof rcdhclient'. Even
when name resolution is working fine, neither command returns anything.

There's nothing in /var/log/messages about dhclient, except for the messages
generated by restarting it.
