    did that actually restart the network? Maybe there was nothing to change.... what are you trying to do?

    You seem frustrated, so I'll just throw in my 2 cents. I'm way new, so I looked this up just for my own sake as well. From what I've gathered, /etc/init.d/networking restart is the right command to restart a network that's already started (if you're trying to get a recent change to take effect). If your network is currently down, you'd want /etc/init.d/networking start. I apologize if I'm telling you stuff you already know.

    yeh, the script to start/stop/restart the network will be located in
    /etc/init.d
    if you are not sure exactly what it is, then type the first few letters of what u want, and hit tab a couple of times.

    As it's the network you're trying to start, try:

    Code:
    /etc/init.d/net<tab><tab>
    That should either autofill out network (or whatever it is) on the first tab, ot give u a list of everything beginning with net on the second press of tab.

    as Embiggens said
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/network start
    or
    Code:
    ifup -a

    Don't forget auto eth0

    Note that you also must have your interfaces declared as "auto" in /etc/network/interfaces like so:
    Code:
    allow-hotplug eth1
    auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet static
            address 10.0.11.1
            netmask 255.0.0.0
            network 10.0.0.0
            broadcast 10.255.255.255
            dns-nameservers 10.0.0.1 10.0.1.1 10.0.2.1
    Without the "auto eth1",
    Code:
    ifup -a
    doesn't do anything.

    However,
    Code:
    ifup eth1
    does.
