dumb ifconfig_question

hi list,

when i do <sudo ifconfig eth0 down> contact with the internet is duly shut off. but: when i do <sudo ifconfig eth0 up> nothing happens: i still cannot reach the internet.

what is it that i miss?

lspci gives: 00:14.0 Bridge: nVidia Corporation MCP51 Ethernet Controller (rev a3)

nano /etc/network/interfaces tells me:

# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
allow-hotplug eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

in /etc/udev I find:

# PCI device 0x10de:0x0269 (forcedeth)
SUBSYSTEM=="net", DRIVERS=="?*", ATTRS{address}=="00:17:31:aa:03:d8", NAME="eth0"

so all seems to be normal.

when i boot my box all works again as it should.
