Yes, there is.
The manual configuration writes into /etc/network/interfaces
In there, comment out everything but the loopback device.

Then I usually quit and restart the knetworkmanager. However,
occasionally (and I haven't found a procedure to reliably repeat this
effect), a residual task named "network-manager" somehow runs with
eating up to like 80 to 90 percent of the cpu power. I then close
knetworkmanager, kill this process manually and restart knetworkmanager.

Another way to restart the network is to simply issue a restart of the
dbus service: "/etc/init.d/dbus restart". However, on my T23, every dbus
restart diables the direct rendering for my graphics card.
