No. It's a static IP-address and it's hard-coded in

I did that.

No need for that step (?), as network brings it up automatically.
But this just cuts out the noise from NetworkManager, I think. So now I
get the bare-bones of the loop in syslog:
Dec 29 08:44:30 susannah kernel: [251002.713374] e1000e 0000:06:00.0: eth0: Reset adapter
Dec 29 08:44:39 susannah kernel: [251011.985405] e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex, Flow Control: None
Dec 29 08:44:39 susannah kernel: [251011.985409] e1000e 0000:06:00.0: eth0: 10/100 speed: disabling TSO
Dec 29 08:44:40 susannah dhcpd: BOOTREQUEST from 00:14:7f:f8:83:dd via eth0
Dec 29 08:44:40 susannah dhcpd: BOOTREPLY for 192.168.254.254 to myrouter (00:14:7f:f8:83:dd) via eth0
Dec 29 08:44:50 susannah kernel: [251022.871241] e1000e: eth0 NIC Link is Down
Dec 29 08:44:50 susannah kernel: [251022.872351] e1000e 0000:06:00.0:eth0: Reset adapter
which just repeats until I reset the router. I guess the router just
doesn't like what it's getting.
