Ok, I used both the fat client, and the web based system i navigator.

route, nor change it to a different IP address as they were both greyed
Turns out that when I was changing the old IP addresses to the new ones I
would delete the old one once I had a new matching IP address. So let's
say 10.10.1.111 became 10.10.6.48. After creating 10.10.6.48 I would
delete 10.10.1.111. Well, I never got a new address for 10.10.1.238 so I
left it in the table to figure out what that interface was and deal with
it later. Apparently the interface became active. And the os said "screw
your default route table. I'm going out this 10.10.1.x interface I have
All network issues resolved.
Kind of kills my old rule: "Never do today what you can put off until
tomorrow" when trying to determine what to do with an old IP address.
