Do you have any network interfaces? 'ifconfig -a' will list them.
Do you have Network Manager installed? Running?

This looks like a broken PPA upgrade, from whichever PPA that provides
Python 3.3 for you.
I suggest you attempt to remove both conflicting packages with
sudo apt-get remove idle-python3.3 libpython3.3-stdlib --fix-missing
sudo dpkg --configure -a
sudo apt-get install --fix-missing
You can install them back later. Perhaps from a different PPA -- I
recommend https://launchpad.net/~fkrull/+archive/ubuntu/deadsnakes, it
shouldn't have this problem.
This problem with 3rd-party Python packages isn't something that's
likely to have broken your network connectivity.
