What if you try to bring the net up manually: ifup -a
Any help?

If not, lets see how the stuff is configured. Please post the output from these two commands:

ifconfig
cat /etc/network/interfaces

Hmm, my internet is working again . What I don't understand is how I should configure my network in Debian. In gentoo there is: net-setup. Is there something similar in Debian?

It's probably because you rebooted, I had the same happen to me after an upgrade.

Normally I just edit the /etc/network/interfaces manually (see the manpage for 'interfaces' for further info).

I could try that. However I really would like to have the installer program 'netcfg'available for easy (re)configuration of my network. Or maybe something like the knoppix/kanotix network config app.
