You're right - when Win2k detects no cable it shuts down all routes to
and from that adapter. I might be able to turn off the media detect on
my network adpater (MSDN Q239924), but for me it's easier to point
coLinux at my wireless card which is always "connected." It won't work
to get to the Internet that way, but it allows Win2k and coLinux to see
each other now when I'm not near an Ethernet jack.
Thanks for the help!
