Kubuntu - Can't connect to the internet, but can connect to the LAN


I've recently set up a local development webserver using Karmic Koala. I downloaded and installed the server version of Kubuntu and have the web server working.
The problem is that for some reason, I'm no longer able to connect to the internet. I can connect to my router, and other machines in my network can VNC into the server.

I'm using an wired connection to the router and have the server set up on an internal IP of I used to be able to connect to the internet, I downloaded and installed a load of packages etc before it stopped working.

The last thing I remember doing before it stopped working was that I installed Samba so I could share files with the other machines on the network (two Macs running Leopard and a WinXP laptop).
I got the share working - I copied a load of files to the server via the share, rebooted, and for some reason now I can't connect to the net (and other machines can't see the Samba share either.) However I can still VNC into the server.

I hope someone can help me with this! I really need this webserver working but am on the verge of re-installing it!

As an update on the problem above, I went into Network manager to check my settings one more time.
I had previously set up a Wired connection to my router, and this was the one which wasn't working. However my server also has built-in wireless so for the fun of it I thought I'd set up a wireless connection.
I didn't really think it would make any difference...

However, it did! I can now connect to the internet on the server.

I still can't see my Samba shares though... does anyone have any ideas on that?
