We ran into an interesting problem when figuring out how to dock and undock the computer from an Ethernet jack: most of those cable heads are equipped with a locking tab. At first I tried to find some tabless Ethernet cables, and a surprisingly fruitless search of local computer stores led me back home. I then assumed I could break the tab off easily and just run with it for the time being, but after struggling with trying to snap it off, the problem solved itself. We realized that by positioning the set screw channel directly in line with the locking tab, it would be automatically depressed when installed in the dock. Simplicity at its finest.
