Thank you for your prompt reply, but i already thought of trying to unplug the cables, and should have included that information in my post however, it was the end of a long day and I must have been tired.
NOTE I am not at the actual site where the broken machine is right now, but can test on an almost identical setup here in my office. However there is on major difference the machine in my office work perfectly other than the when i unplug a cable UTM9 is still reporting Up and Up
Anyways this is a copy/paste (sorry could not get screen capture working) of my dashboard with both cables unplugged. Note the Up Up for Ethernet and Cable Modem these represent the State and Link fields respectively. They always display as Up Up no matter how log i leave the cables unplugged, think the default refresh on the dashboard is 5 seconds.
# This is WAN in UTM9 think it has to do with what you pick for adminitratino interface? backwards but it works probably doesnt matter might figure it out one day
iface eth0 inet manual
# This is LAN in UTM9 same as above a bit confusing, but it works
iface eth1 inet manual
Ethernet Up Up
Cable Modem Up Up
Bit of a complicated setup as i am running this as a KVM machine and have tried with e2000 and virtio interfaces. These Interfaces are bridged in my /etc/network/interfaces like below, and i am having considerable difficulty deciding which port to plug the INET into
iface vmbr0 inet static
iface vmbr1 inet manual
