From the version number it looks like you are running Gentoo.  Have you
updated baselayout recently?  If so, perhaps you overwrote
your /etc/conf.d/rc, which has to have net scripts disabled so as not to
conflict with NM.

Look here:

Hmm, for some reason I had two "RC_PLUG_SERVICES="" sections in there.
I removed one of them and set it to RC_PLUG_SERVICES="!net.*"
I hope that helps.

First thing: when I come home from work where I was connected using a static IP (at work I stop NM, set the static IP, then on reboot the PC goes back to it's dhcp settings) for some odd reason NM keeps setting my work IP and doesn't renew the IP for my home network. This is a recent occurrence and I can't figure out why it started doing it.

WLAN devices store the last IP address.  Indeed, NM is supposed to
overwrite it when you select your home AP.

I forgot to mention...  I am only talking about the wired interface.
Oh, and I am on Gentoo.

Secondly, at random times I will loose my connection. The IP is still there but I think NM messes up the default route info. Restarting NM fixes it or simply setting the default route manually does it. Why is it doing this?

This is why I think it may be a Gentoo problem -- RC service plugging
may be undoing what NM's setting.

Sounds like you are right.  I must have overwrote a config file in an
update.  Thanks for the link.
