Normally Northgate should work, it's configured as a cacheing
secondary and uses Wetnet as it's primary.
However, go ahead and cheat until we can figure out a way to
get wetnet better connected on 110 lan. Right now the rf path is
really acting flaky.

Yup, Wetnet has a problem with Northgate. It started a month or
so ago and we speculate that it's do to the time of year, trees etc.
We just don't have enough link margin on that path.
