Remove all network configuration and replace with original install

I assume this sounds like a weird question but, I have been mucking about with a lot of things that mess with the network stack on my machine (examples: docker, libvirt, bridging, openstack, ovirt, etc.). However, some large percentage of the time, I break my network stack in somewhat unrecoverable ways. I often resort to reinstalling.

So, the question is simply, this: Is there any way to remove all the network configuration and let the system re-detect it like it did when I installed? Obviously, this needs to be executable without network access but could have some steps to do in preparation when network access is still available.
