If I reinstalled the QtMoko (v16d) and used the QtBackup utility to
restore my settings and files, then I still had the same problem ("No
network"). But now I did clean install without restoring from backup
and now everything seems to work. I rebooted once and still works.

But it is still weird that replacing the battery can cause that kind
of problems.
