root@new [~]# route -n
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use Iface UH    0      0        0 eth0   U     0      0        0 eth0     U     1002   0        0 eth0       U     0      0        0 eth0         UG    0      0        0 eth0

I can remove the entry with

route delete -net

This works, but after reboot this line comes back. Any idea how to permanently have it removed?

    You need to find where it's coming from. Can you edit into your question the output of grep 176 /etc/sysconfig/static-routes /etc/sysconfig/network /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/* /etc/rc.d/rc.local? – MadHatter Sep 2 '13 at 11:10

Check /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/route-eth0,

Grep recursivly for in /etc for the file containing the route

# grep -r "" /etc

    That was the trick for me. It turned out another app (openVPN) was incorrectly configured to add a static route that broke traffic to the remote network. Thanks! – palehorse Aug 11 '14 at 21:07
