Yes. You have 2 "default" gateways, and it looks like you made one of
these your linux box.

When you reboot your machine and it sets its configuration for netwokring
and routing, do you get the same as above?

If you run your network configuration tool, look to plug in the following
values into the fields that correspond to the lables below:

Your Linux Box's IP address:
subnet mask/netmask:
DNS:                ,

These next ones may or may not be asked for:
Network Name/Network ID:
Broadcast Address: 
Domain:                      earthlink.net

Let us know if there are fields that you do not fill in, and what they
are called.

After you configure these numbers to the right places when running one of
those networking tools, then try rebooting your machine into linux.

After the reboot, report to us the contents of
# route -N
