Lost internet connection after update

I'm not sure where to post this so I'll just post it here, since it's kind of a general problems area...

I'm running Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy, updated from 7.10. I have virtual box installed, rather had, and after I upgraded to hardy it hasn't been working properly. So I think I made a mistake when I installed vbox-modules-rt. Vbox still wasn't working until it released updates which I installed through Ubuntu's update manager. After I restarted the computer (which is a Toshiba Satellite A55-S1066 in case thats useful info) it won't wirelessly or through hardwire connect to the internet. Also Compize, AWN, and the Screenlets programs all don't work. So I hurriedly uninstalled Vbox and all it's components. Bummer...

After I restarted again nothing has changed. I'm not sure where the problem is so I ask questions... Thanks for any help you can give me

I don't understand isdn lines, the internet connection is lost in ubuntu. I usually connect wirelessly through a router connected to a cable modem. Either way I can't get compiz to work as well.
