    Looks like you've got a routing loop

    check: misconfigured routes, interfaces go up and down , and so on....

    That would be the "default gateway" that your router is using, correct?

    Can you provide some information as to how your network is setup (topology, equipment, etc.)?

    It is most likely a routing loop somewhere, but we'll need more information to narrow it down.
