2.6.5 -- I broke the internet

Apologies for the cross-posting...

I'm at a complete loss as to why I no longer have the internet post 2.6.5
install. I can boot into the old 2.4.22 kernel with no ethernet problems,
so I know it's not a hardware problem. Neither my ethernet card, nor my
wireless card want to play nicely. I've wandered around the internet with
Lynx, but I haven't come across any other posts/pages/etc that are

thanks for your suggestions!
