Wow. I have never seen that happen in SUSE. I've always thought this
possible and have seen this in other OSes and lesser software such as
Windows. You (as in your computer and setup) have managed to get both a
DHCP address and a static address at the same time. Quite cool. Doesn't
work well as you point out.

Is the NetGear your firewall/router device? Log into it and cut back the
number of DHCP leases it hands out. Restrict it to a smaller range that
doesn't include 192.168.111.54. Use say 192.168.111.100 thru
192.168.111.254.

This is also a case where I strongly advise a hard reboot of a system. Even
power off, pull the power plug for 20-30 seconds and then power up.
