Please don't make us guess.  What _exactly_ is the response from ifconfig or 
ifup, and what appears in syslog?

You need to be _very_ careful about doing dist-upgrades.  I'm using kubuntu 
breezy, and if I'd allowed a dist-upgrade yesterday I'd probably be in the 
same position.  While dist-upgrade tries to do the right thing, sometimes - 
as apt sees it - the right thing would be to remove large parts of your 
system.  What apt sources are you using?
