Make sure we run the calculateNetworkId function only once per change and at the end of the coalescing period. That will not only avoid multiple invokes but also allow the system a full extra second to use the gateway and thus populate the ARP cache.
My hope is that this will decrease the networkid failure rate somewhat. We will need other mitigations too, but this should still be the correct thing to do.
