Network Down Apps trying to use lo instead of eth0
Let me try that again. Sorry. Using Gmail's web interface and I seem
to have botched the formatting. The results of route are:
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
192.168.2.0 * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0
loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0
0 0 lo
default 192.168.2.1 0.0.0.0 U 0 0
