This is configured to use IP6 and it's receiving and transmitting data.
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:16:D3:4F:BD:9B

TX Bytes is 0 - none of your ping packets have left via this port.
Anyone have a clue? What can I try next?
Are you really using ath0 for anything? Turn it off and see if your problems
go away... it looks like it's getting all of the traffic when you want to
use your wired network and I suspect you think data is leaving on eth0.
When 1 person suffers from a delusion it is insanity. When many people
suffer from a delusion it is called Religion.
