It can actually see of X.X.8.X which is what the DNS, and proxy server
are on so it isn't just limited to X.X.143.X.  I think it just can't see
X.X.104.0-107.255 which is grabbed by eth0 X.X.105.30 for which I had a
default route of X.X.104.1

I have a script which is run after connecting which does this
route del default	# deletes current default route
ifdown eth0		# downs ethernet interface
route add default gw X.X.143.187	# adds new default gw

What do the $5 and $6 refer to, they're variables but where do they get
values from ?

I'll give it a go,

I manually delete the default route and do a
route add default gw
when I have to connect to my local network at home
