this is my "ifconfig" output: just look at the eth0 part and please tell me what is the deal ?

yeah sure :)) sry ! it's a home computer (laptop), I shutdown it usually , so it hasn't been up for a long time . 12 hours maximum. I'm always connected to internet but not with eth0 but using wlan0. nothing happens when I restart and the counter is still the same . The manufacturer is Qualcomm Atheros and my system runs ubuntu x64.
