Nope, ifconfig says the same thing. I unplug the cable and it still
thinks the link is working:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:05:5D:E5:AE:08
          inet addr:192.168.1.2  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
          UP BROADCAST NOTRAILERS RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:171435 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:148330 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:102567868 (97.8 Mb)  TX bytes:23695300 (22.5 Mb)
          Interrupt:10 Base address:0x1000

I don't think this has anything to do with what tool I'm using to
query the information or how I care to parse the output. Thanks for
the big help.
