Only happened after I had the computer completely freeze on me, which is very rare, when I brought up jdownloader2 which I hadn't in a long time and it froze as it was "rebuilding cache" or such.
Here's what my /etc/network/interfaces file look like...I've only been playing with it to have the mac addresses being changed at boot, when I attempted to have it done for eth0, it seemed to work, but I had not rebooted in a long time, a month or so

At least I figured out how to get back online. Got no wifi running here, disabled entirely on the router and my mobo doesn't even have a wifi adapter anyways, holes were drilled in too many places in this house and annoyingly hard to put up and long ethernet cables go to all the rooms in this place so there's no bothering with it. Anyway that's not my main problem here. I know the onboard ethernet adapter isn't broken as I can conjure it, plus a green light and pulsing happens when I get it connected on the plug, so this is just a result of my messing around. Sigh, feels like a rookie mistake, I'm sure I knew how to fix this before and just forgot after all those years.
