comment Gigabit Ethernet wiring
While it may be recommended to use Cat5e or Cat6, it will work with Cat5. However, anything that goes wrong, could knock it back down to 100Mbps. So keep it away from power, flourescent lights, any other EMI.

comment Bizarre and very specific Internet connection loss
Everything sounds like a bad router. You need to test with a different router. Until you do that, most everything else would be hypothetical.

comment Device that connects to a switch via RJ45, that emulates a PC
The Raspberry Pi is very close to what I was looking for. It is affordable (The class would need ~24 of them, so cost is a motivating factor). The only two downsides I see to it is it does not have a case (Yes, I know we can get a seperate one), and it does not appear simple to configure (This would require the instructor to prepare all of the devices, and provide instructions on how to change the IP address). If I don't get a better answer that addresses the case/configuration issues, then I'll approve this one.

comment Device that connects to a switch via RJ45, that emulates a PC
This is a CCNA classroom, we are looking to simulate a PC connected to an ethernet port on a router. These will be on different subnets, etc. This might be doable with a VM through VLANs and virtual switches, but then we are getting away from configuring the physical ports on the router the way we want to.

comment Is it possible to automate the process of making a system image on Windows XP?
Honestly, if this person isn't in a workgroup environment, SID issues won't really crop up. If he's a standalone computer, SID doesn't matter. If it's a domain computer, the SID gets changed based off the domain RID. Workgroup though... that will cause issues. From what I've read, the biggest issue with not doing sysprep is WSUS GUIDs and stuff.

comment App created in spreadsheet vs programming a full application - is there a middle ground?
I've used InfoPath. Its a form application. You can design your own forms (similar to XFDL or PDF forms), complete with digital signatures, dynamic views, etc. It also connects to a variety of different data sources, to submit and receive data from. So, you can connect it to an access/SQL database to retrieve customer information, then save the form to a document library on SharePoint, and have data-bound columns in the document library. VERY powerful.
