SOLVED: Re: apt-get confused when laptop plugged elsewhere

:> but this should not matter. I commented out all lines except localhost
:> in /etc/hosts and rebooted, got DHCP lease, all working, except again
:> apt-get update tries to connect to 192.168.6.1. Why?

:If so apt-get may be seeing a cached address.
