  It would be very helpful if you could get output from some commands
into a email like has been requested a before... I would recommend 
trying to use a floppy disk to transfer the text file to a machine 
that can use the network or to save the text on vfat filesystem and
boot 'evil' to transfer it somewhere.

  From what I remember seeing done to your computer nothing _should_
have changed it's network behavior... except possibly when a dhcp
client was installed.
  On debian the network configuration is mainly stored in 
/etc/network/interfaces, which has a man page "man interfaces".
I recommend just checking there for a second.

  Besides the X server, possibly dhcp client, apt-get dist-upgrade...
are there any other things you remember being done to your machine?

this is a list of the commands I would like to see run on that machine:
uname -a
route -n
ipchains -L -n
cat /etc/network/interfaces

one of:
  mtr -n -c 3 -r
  traceroute -n
