Yeah, the only time it's actually been of any use to me is to do technobabble so Networks will actually listen to what I'm saying.

Honestly, it boils down to "is the plumbing working?" (connectivity, NIC, cable, drivers), "can a packet get there on the right port" (routing, firewall), and then the rest is "application layer" almost always.
