I have rebooted the router-modem combination or gateway as they call it.
I know internet is working because I am using it with this ipad.
The ubuntu pc is wired, not wireless. It is possible the cable may have come loose,
but that would not explain why i can no longer log into the router wirelessly with the ipad
like I could before.
Let me go check that cable tho anyway.
But I don't think thats it.

First, I would reset your router and modem. Unplug both and wait at least 30 seconds. Plug in the router first and wait 30 seconds. Then plug in the modem. If you haven't rebooted in a while, try completely shutting down the machine and rebooting.

If that doesn't work, try booting the Ubuntu DVD or a rescue disc and see if you have Internet. It could be that your ISP is down and it's a temporary outage. I know this is obvious, but did you pay the bill? If not, maybe they cut you off.

Can you try with real ethernet? Can you plug an ethernet cable into your machine and the router? Since it suddenly stopped working and you know your router password, I think it's either something with your ISP, a bad router or switch (they wear out) or a bad wireless card. You could also try plugging the ethernet cable directly into your modem and your machine to eliminate the router.
