Somehow I've configured an alias for my eth0 device. If I do ifconfig, I see eth0 and eth0:1. I can do a ifconfig eth0:1 del xx.xx.xx.xx and it goes away. However, if I do a 'ifdown eth0' and then 'ifup eth0', it's back out there. When both are active, I notice a continual slowdown of network access. Websites take several minutes to display, and pings just don't happen. I use linuxconf to configure the devices, but there are not aliases configured in there. Is there some way to permanently disable this device? Could this cause the slowdown on my machine?
