Using ifconfig to take it down and then up.  Since you can not get in at 
all, from the console, 1) assign network ports. (This does the same thing) 
If it comes up at that point, you just need an ifconfig in the config.xml to 
"bounce" the nics on boot.  This is common with the Compaq tlan cards, but 
this is the first time I have seen it on a realtek.
