[K12OSN] etherboot "slow dots"

I have some older IBM computers that use etherboot because they don't support PXE. For some reason, several of them started showing a problem where the "dots" that fill up the screen during the boot process are glacially slow, and the computers often will fail to boot all the way. A different computer, sitting right next to it, booting PXE, boots up lightning quick.

These computers have been thin clients for years, and are connecting to the same server all year. Any ideas where I can troubleshoot the booting problem? It's very odd...
