have no idea. All I know is its there on every fedora machine since about
FC3 or 4, my lappy FC5 has it, and it is not setup in any config file
anyplace. And it is not part of any network or subnet at that site.
I think we're losing track of the real problem by being distracted by the
169 address. We'd kill it if we knew how to do it.
Does the machine at 192.168.1.12 have more then one NIC? Is it by
any chance running the name server for your local network, or
providing access to it? We may need to know more about your local
network setup to properly fix things

well as get your routing working properly. DNS for the local network
should not depend on the default route using 192.168.1.12 as your
default gateway. Unless that machine has more then one NIC, and the
second NIC provides a connection to another network, it should not
be a gateway at all. If it does provide access to another network,
then you need to define routes to those networks.
