When you're making changes to your primary NIC it is always a good idea to login via a console session to avoid this scenario. While login via the NIC can actually survive something like "service network restart" if it runs quickly enough there is no guarantee it will or that you modified the NIC configuration properly enough to have it come up. At this point you need to access the console. If you don't have remote console access you'll have to either find someone to push buttons for you on site or go there yourself.
