Boot machine with network switch off. Start switch. Networking is dead. Can't ping in or out. Cannot telnet or anything else in.

[root@aurora quantumdot]# ifdown eth0
[root@aurora quantumdot]# ifup eth0
SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
SIOCADDRT: Network is down

Mine is a netgear with the real DEC chip in it. I hope this helps debug it.
