Problems with the internet.

I've had my Eee PC linux since Christmas, not once has it played me up, until recently.

The laptop had indicated that I was not connected to the internet, which was strange because it had always worked, so I waited for approximately 2 hours, still nothing. I rebooted, started the wirless from fresh, connecting everything up again etc.

Still nothing, so I did a system restore, it then worked for an hour or so before doing the same thing, except this time, the cursor keeps freezing.

The left click on the touchpad now doesn't work either, along with the on/off button located under the screen.

Taking into consideration that I have not once dropped the laptop, turned it off correctly, it has not over heated. I'm not sure what else to do.
