Make sure that the default route isn't the virtual ethernet connection
to colinux and double check all of the settings. If its a cable modem
using a router, I assume your using ethernet. You could try deleting
the coLinux device, but making sure your original one is set to be the
default with all of the configuration settings properly set up would
be a good start.
