Ok, so I take that your network card have a valid ip and that the routing is correct, right?
What's happen when you try to ping/reach a website then? What kind of error message do you get?
consider posting the output of :
little update on the situation, i was \tying to further diagnose the problem (tried pinging the gateway ip, didn't work) when the computer hanged, so i restart it and it takes a while to load. so it chugs along, booting at about 1/4 speed, and when gnome is loaded its also really unresponsive. i open a terminal, and lo and behold instead of [X@localhost ~] it gave me a name (X@blahblah) and I can ping the gateway and the internet is suddenly working.
BUT its still really unresponsive. completely flabbergasted it suddenly worked (I didn't change any settings before it crashed) I try rebooting again to see if it still works. It doesn't, instead it boots full speed and I can no longer ping gateway or any external ip.
when i ping anything it simply returns a "host not found" error.
ok, something wrong about the PCI bus... My guess would be to try to add "pci=noacpi" to boot option (edit the "append=" line in lilo.conf then type "lilo"... I don't know grub much but it should be about the same), maybe your acpi implementation is buggy about pci.
