I do not know how to do this, but I will read up on
the page for fwbuilder.  The network is up again
because I moved the older iptables.save into iptables
and it is up.  

I even switched the cables from the machine to see if
it would work and it failed.

Will report back.  Thanks Jeff you have been very
helpful.

Best Regards,

Antonio
