I tried, but now it seems like my Internet connection broke too.
Restarting Ubuntu didn't help. It looks like it's working but I can't
connect to anything. Started Firefox, same thing there.
Sometimes I just get so tired…

Fortunately I have this computer which I'm on right now, with Ubuntu
10.10 installed, which just works. At least the important stuff…

I'll be back when (or if) I fixed it. At the moment I don't have a clue, though.

Kind regards
