It will be abit more clearer if you posted any errors you are receiving for instance when you run "ifconfig" or "ip addr show" from the terminal. What exactly does "messing around" mean? Were you installing new cards, changing your network configs? Kindly shows us some more details.

Ok.. maybe this wont help..

bash: ifconfig: command not found (trying to run ipconfig) (both run from terminal root)
bash: ip: command not found (trying to run ip addr show) (both run from terminal root)

And, i was trying to manually setup my i.p. address so that my set ports on my router could work on bittorrent, but in the process of doing that, i seem to have.. mislaid my network information, meaning.. that i cannot connect to the internet in any way, at the moment.. >_>

ip: 192.168.1.136
netmask: 255.255.255.0
gateway: 192.168.1.1
/\
"What I was trying to setup"

P.S. I am using YDL 6.0 (mentioned above)

From the what you were trying to work on suspect it doesnt have entirely much to do with your distro as you are insisting. My guess is that the problem is what you did with your router configs. I dunno if its a cisco router or a general linux box. Can you see your eth0(or whatever you have named your cards)? If not are they active? Can you ping your router?

ive already said that ipconfig doesnt work

i cant connect to my router using http://192.168.1.1

i cannot connect to the internet though any program

I have a linksys BEFSR41 router

I only used wired connection, and i can see my network card "eth0" and it says "inactive"
when i try activate it says no link present, check cable.. cable is perfectly ok, it works on PS3 OS, just seems as if ethnet card has been disabled, how to re-enable?

=S

iwconfig worked for me not ifconfig, heres results

Code:
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:19:C5:65:90:E3  
          inet6 addr: fe80::219:c5ff:fe65:90e3/64 Scope:Link
          UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:154 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:1587 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000 
          RX bytes:26662 (26.0 KiB)  TX bytes:457374 (446.6 KiB)
          Interrupt:60
