There seems to be a arduino tcp stack.  It is on the roswiki when you search for arduino. Allthough i also could not yet figure out how to use it...

What I'm envisioning is this device participating on a wired network with a PC which provides roscore. The M3 would come up and have an IP configured where it looks for core (or it could just arp on its subnet and try them all).
