Q.  How do I start/stop my ethernet/internet connection?

A.  Assuming everything is installed and working, these are the commands:

ifup eth0 # Bring ethernet zero up (start) ifdown eth0 # Bring ethernet zero down (stop) ifconfig eth0 # See the status of ethernet zero ifconfig # See the status of all network interfaces
If you prefer a text GUI:
system-config-network-tui
Or a true GUI:
system-config-network
