Not much sense to me either. When I have no network connection, I have this
xml 20:11$ /sbin/ifconfig
lo Link encap:Local Loopback
inet addr:127.0.0.1 Mask:255.0.0.0
UP LOOPBACK RUNNING MTU:3924 Metric:1
RX packets:413424 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:413424 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
When connected via eth0 or ppp0, I have similar entries for those interfaces.
Similarly, with no external network connection, I get this from route:
xml 12:59$ /sbin/route
Kernel IP routing table
Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface
127.0.0.0 * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
