@rbuckland hmm i think having the nic as an asset would over complicate things, but not really sure? as to your other question (PCI nic's etc.), that info should be kept in the ethernet>specs section. to me connections, should be kept separate. again, because if i disconnect an ethernet cable and connect it to another switch, i don't want to lose mac address, ip info, etc. that stuff's too valuable. connections should just be a virtual connection between machines to remember where you plugged things in. well, that's just my opinion - i don't think there's really a wrong answer though.
