Well the reason I ask is: I have a Win2K Server running ICS. Say both of
them are connected fine. If I reboor the Win  box and start up ICS,
FreeBSD is no longer able to communicate. Im assuming I have to restart
or "repair" the interface

I think you're getting confused by terminology, or maybe I am.  If
your device is broken, you'll have to replace it.  What do you really
want to do?  To restart it, you could do something like

  # ifconfig ed0 down
  # ifconfig ed0 up

That should never be necessary, though.
