Likely cause:

169.254.x.x is what MS uses for DHCP client that cannot connect to a 
DHCP server.

It looks like somebody fired up their computer with the network cable 
unplugged, then later plugged it in. Your routes point 169.254.x.x out 
to the Internet.

The solution is to reboot whoever's generating that IP address.
