Filipe: I removed the GATEWAY line from the :0 and :1 files and now everything seems to be working perfectly. I don't understand how that works since the IP addresses from :0 and :1 are on a different subnet than the one for eth0 and they have a different gateway. I guess I don't understand the finer points of networking. The solution worked and I am thankful for that.
