AFAIK you have just to shutdown the NIC and restart it via

Don't get me wrong, but I have the great effort to understand
the OS really and still stucking at the basics :/
And books aren't always the best way to learn.
The main reason I advised that was that he tried ifdown/ifup and it
didn't seem to recognize the new gateway setting. The way the network
gets setup on bootup is via running the /etc/init.d/networking script,
so I just advised repeating that.
You might be correct on the ifdown/ifup sequence. I might be getting
this confused with the ifconfig command.... Guess it is time to read the
man pages again :(
