Not quite sure what you mean;  '/etc/network/interfaces' should contain
lines similar to the following:

  auto eth0
  iface eth0 inet dhcp

and the interface can be restarted with:

  sudo ifdown eth0
  sudo ifup eth0

You can change both of this through the configuration menus available in the
Ubuntu desktop.
