Hey there! Are you still having trouble with this? We put our network config in /etc/rc.digitalocean.d/DROPLETID.conf, where DROPLETID is your droplet id number. That's symlinked to /etc/rc.digitalocean.d/droplet.conf, and if that symlink breaks, then you won't have any networking.

From my experience, sometimes that link breaks when upgrading ports. I'm not sure what causes that yet, but you should be able to re-link it and you'll be good to go, if that's the issue you're seeing.
