If you don't know your ISP's nameservers, let me give a different suggestion for now. Put the following in /etc/resolv.conf:
nameserver 22.214.171.124 nameserver 126.96.36.199
(Those nameserver are provided by OpenDNS by the way.)

well, I got my internet fixed, I reinstalled ubuntu from a live CD I had laying around and it started working like a charm! regretfully, I have a lot of work left to do to get my system back the way I like it, but as Machiavelli once said, the ends justify the means. Thanks for all of the good advice (especially from Anomie!) This has been a great crash course in linux networking for me (it turns out netcat is a pretty cool little program!) anyway, problem solved! cheers!
