Hi everyone,

I has a strange issue with the network.My current system is snow leopard. Please take a look at the screen-shot:

In the screen-shot you can see that the en0(Ethernet) is inactive but it has inet IP address (the same as the router IP).

The computer is currently using airport connection en1: inet IP

Why does this thing happen? How can i fix it (mean no inet IP for the Ethernet). Thank a tons.
