Yes, a Subversion repository is case sensitive. You should not change
the case of items inside a working copy. You can, however, rename a
working copy to be anything you want. So if the name of your working
copy was "network" there should have been no harm in changing its
name to "Network" or "foo" or anything else. Perhaps you could show
us an actual transcript of the commands you entered and the response
you got back?
