Is there a way to have a general user ( not in the admin group ) the ability to enable or disable components in the ethernet properties page ( start or stop the client for microsoft networks , etc )

Power User assignment I think will allow that.

By using MMC to add GPO Snap-in for the computer, you can navigate to Local Computer Policy>User Configuration>Administrative Templates>Network>Network Connection>.
Then configure the Ability to Enable\Disable a LAN connections.

[This will allow the users to remain as regular users and not be elevated to Power Users. But, as Joseph_Moore suggested, Power User assignment should work as well.]

This configuration determines whether users can enable/disable LAN connections.
If you enable this setting, the Enable and Disable options for LAN connections are available to users (including nonadministrators). Users can enable/disable a LAN connection by double-clicking the icon representing the connection, by right-clicking it, or by using the File menu.

If you disable this setting (and enable the "Enable Network Connections settings for Administrators" setting), double-clicking the icon has no effect, and the Enable and Disable menu items are disabled for all users (including administrators).

Important: If the "Enable Network Connections settings for Administrators" is disabled or not configured, this setting will not apply to administrators on post-Windows 2000 computers.

If you do not configure this setting, only Administrators and Network Configuration Operators can enable/disable LAN connections.

Note: Administrators can still enable/disable LAN connections from Device Manager when this setting is disabled.

What are you ultimately trying to accomplish?
