A pointy haired boss who still enjoys firing up a code editor.

By day I'm a mild-mannered project manager at a software company in Clearwater, Florida.

By night, I do a lot of work on Zen Cart, and help moderate the Zen Cart forum.

Worked! I suspect you're right that the issue was flakiness in NetworkManager.

@MariusMatutiae I think I see what you're saying - I added the 2 google nameservers to my /etc/resolv.conf and things started working again - but what the heck happened?

Yes @r3mus I can ping 192.168.1.1. On a working machine I go to "whatismyipaddress.com" and get my external address, and can ping that successfully as well from my failing machine.

Ping 8.8.4.4 fails @MariusMatutiae - same error, "connect: Network is unreachable." But then I did a "route -n" and realized I had no gateway, added one ("route add -net 0.0.0.0 gw 192.168.1.1 p3p1") and now I can ping 8.8.4.4 but still not 74.125.229.194 (google).
