I would think that since he can connect from one network jack, but not
another network jack, that the software and the NIC have been eliminated
from the pool of probable cause.
I could be wrong.

Not necessarily, for example it could be a loose connector on the NIC, a flaky wire in the cat5 cable, the new jack could be connected to a totally different network segment, etc. It's easier to solve these things if you don't make too many assumptions, though using the cat five tester to check from the end of the workstation network cable to to the end of patch panel cross connect would eliminate most of the hardware stuff in one fell swoop.
