I'm on a local-only network that for some reason is being given a default
route by networkmanager. There are two default entries in my routing
table. The issue goes away when the local one is removed!
Thanks so much; I get so confused.

I was surprised to find so few open source cable modems, and such small
development communities around them, back when I had one. It's an xfinity
router. But I could have run a sniffer on another system.

This reveals the issue. Traceroute resolves ipv4 addresses and requests
all seem to terminate at the wrong interface. Curl is resolving ipv6
addresses which get routed to the wan interface. It seems the websites and
ips that didn't work were the ones without ipv6 addresses!
