how do you know that its is inactive? did you down the device? (you
dint mention this)

thats fine that your eth1 is active but how do machine know that the
packets should be transfered through eth0 or eth1? and also check to
which device your wireless is set to. The device which shows the
memory address is the wireless device( also check if there are some
proxy or some firewall)
