Can you remove Gnome without losing services?

No. However, I believe gnome has networking tools (applets and stuff) you can use to graphically setup your network connection.

To know what the problem really is, open a terminal, and pickup from there. But as for your initial question, gnome is not required to enable networking.

It might be that removing Gnome has gone too far and a configuration file has got removed. Have you tried re-setting the networking from Xfce?

If you removed Gnome, you likely also removed the Gnome network manager.
