My linux VM lost internet after disconnecting my F5 VPN session
I have been running a Linux Mint VM for some months now, where I do my Ruby and Ruby-related development.
Earlier today I installed the F5 VPN plugin and used my linux VM to connect to my company's network. This worked just fine, and I could do anything I normally do, plus connect to our company servers and databases.
The problem started when I disconnected from VPN later today. Once I did that, I can still reach my router, but can no longer get to the internet.
Pinging mit.edu or google.com simply fails.
Here is my ifconfig info:
eth0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:0c:29:cb:78:00

Please note that this is a wired connection. I am currently running the VM in bridged mode, but have also tried swapping back and forth to NAT mode (where it shares the same IP as the host computer), with no luck.
Nor has doing simple things like ifconfig eth0 down (and then up) helped.
