OK, typing "neat" and <enter> from a root prompt gets the GUI I've been
mostly using. Clicking the activate mark, with either eth0 or eth1
highlighted, gets me an error message saying the device seems not to be
present.

On that tab, it calls eth0 an Intel EthernetExpress/100 drive -- and eth1
a 3Com 3c501 -- and says both are configured. The IPSec tab, btw, shows a
check mark under Profile, Host2Host under Type, 192.168.x.y (the correct
number, under which I access the router from any browser on any other
machine) under Destination, and "netgear" -- the nickname I gave the
router yesterday -- under Nickname.

Everything there was blank. I simply copied verbatim from what I see on a
connecting machine.

It still wouldn't simply activate either eth, but did tell me (as it has
so often) that I might want to restart network services or the machine.
The command "services network restart" gets me only an error saying it's
not recognized. I rebooted. /sbin/ifconfig after the reboot still shows
only the loopback running, with no mention of ethX.

Yup. I do.

Yup. It is.

lspci as root still shows me only "bash: lspci: command not found"

again, not found. The first character in each of those *is* lower case L,
isn't it, not the number 1??
