Hey, we all had to start somewhere.

The 'service' command controls the system services - for instance if you are
running a webserver,
this is one of the services.
To a Linux system, networking is just another service.
The service comand accepts a few arguments, which just about explain themselves
start,   stop,   restart,   status

So 'service network restart' is telling the system to shut down your network
connections, then
start them again.

ps. apologies if I've missed a argument to 'service'
