Indeed - I bet this is your problem.

Looking at the Calomel site they list these private address ranges:
=================================
    private-address: 10.0.0.0/8
    private-address: 172.16.0.0/12
    private-address: 10.0.0.0/16
    private-address: 192.254.0.0/16
=================================
Which is incorrect.
The default private address ranges should be:
=================================
    private-address: 10.0.0.0/8
    private-address: 172.16.0.0/12
    private-address: 192.168.0.0/16
    private-address: 169.254.0.0/16
=================================
By including 192.254.0.0/16 you are blocking proper resolution of many
valid IP blocks.

Blindly relying on third party sites for information can be dangerous.
