Thats the network folder if it gots mixed up:

$ ls -lo / | grep Network

drwxr-xr-x 5 root wheel – 170 12 Sep 2003 Network

$ ls -lo /Network

total 0

drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel – 68 12 Sep 2003 Applications

drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel – 68 12 Sep 2003 Library
drwxr-xr-x 2 root wheel – 68 12 Sep 2003 Users

As a solution for the problem start the and type this command:
$ sudo rm -rf /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist
Now reboot the system and you should be done.
Check afterwards your Network folder:
$ ls -lo /Network
