is .1 your gateway?  

00:50:0f is a Cisco Adaptor
00:04:5a is a linksys Adaptor

What type of network are you on?  IE is this your network? or is a say a 
cablemodem network?  

check out http://www.dslreports.com/forum/remark,8225369~mode=flat, which is 
basically about this same issue and perhaps might shed some light on the 
problem.  

If they where both Cisco Nic's it could be HSRP?

Hope that helps,
-Patrick
