I havn't followed this thread but this notice might help perhaps a little.
After upgrading my perfectly working laptop (perfectly working = working
with DHCP in the institute and working with fixed IP at home) I had very
big problems. The lesser problem was that I had to type pump manually
now in the institute (DHCP). The big problem was, that my network was
unavailable at all at home. After several hours I found out that I have
ifup lo eth0
manually (and do this explicitely - ifup -a didn't work either). If
I did a /etc/init.d/networking start nothing happened, i.e. ifconfig
showed no output. This is really strange and I havn't any explanation
for this behaviour. Seems I have to do some research.
Perhaps you try this manually and get the same?
