Graeme, I hope you don't mind that I included your excellent suggestion at the start of my answer. Some people might not read the comments, and you're right that it should be strongly emphasized.

This worked perfectly. Since starting Wireshark this morning, I've already detected several bad TCP checksums.

comment Should I upgrade to Symantec Endpoint Protection?
GregD, I recently went through exactly the same scenario. SEP was a huge pain. ESET NOD32 is a delight to work with.

comment Some DHCP clients end up with wrong DNS server
Accepted this as my answer because it provided a plausible workaround and good debugging suggestions. My problem is still not resolved, but bounty question would get forced auto-accept.

comment Some DHCP clients end up with wrong DNS server
(Re: update) Yes, this is absolutely what is happening. The DNS settings are changing well before the DHCP lease should ever expire, even several times per day. I am desperate now, so I'll try blowing away the DHCP database tonight.
