Master Reset all of my network settings?

Is there a way that I can do a MASTER RESET on my eth0 and eth1 network cards?

I can't get a DHCP ip on my eth0 today - it worked yesterday......

With Mandriva can restart all network with following command as root:

/etc/rc.d/init.d/network restart
This will restart all network interfaces. Is this what you are looking for?

Some other distros, including Debian and the Ubuntu family have virtually the same command, but it is a little different. To the original poster, it would help if you put your distro in your profile so we knew what you use.

For the Debian family, the command (as root or sudo) is:
/etc/init.d/networking restart
