About Devstack

Devstack is not meant to be restarted. However, setting the IP address 
on br-ex and bringing it up is normally sufficient to re-establish 
networking. After that, you probably still need to recreate the loop 
devices for Cinder and Swift.

What I don't understand: The external network that Devstack sets up by 
default, named "public", is fake. It's not external, and it's not 
connected to the outside world at all, thus the IP address range of How your instances were able to access the internet 
without any manual tweaking is a mystery to me. If you did some manual 
tweaking, I guess it was lost when you rebooted.

Perhaps you had a non-persistent routing table entry that connected to the outside world?
