service is the old command to start services but it still works in fedora
16 (it's a front end to the newer cmd.. i forgot what it's called)

service network status --> will tell you if it's active
service network stop --> will stop network service

same can be applied to network manager..

service NetworkManager status
service NetworkManger stop

ideally you only want NetworkManger running or network running but not
both.. if the status shows both running, kill network and restart
NetworkManager just to make sure it's running fresh:

service NetworkManager restart

that's about all i can think of
