Static IP problems

I decided to set my IP to a static address. I went through the network manager in the taskbar and selected the manual setting for the only connection I have (wired). I set the IP to 192.168.1.2 where the DHCP had it assigned to 192.168.1.4, which changed everytime I rebooted. I disconnected and reconnected and it seemed to work. However, hostname -I showed TWO IP's for the connection. The one I assigned and the on DHCP assigned. I found that I could not connect to some websites, and had no problem with others! So, I changed it back to DHCP only, but hostname -I still shows two connections, the one DHCP assigned and the static one I tried to enter. I have rebooted with the same results! I cannot get rid of the second IP. Using IP addresses I can reach the computer from either address! Finally changed the manual address to 0.0.0.2 and unselected it. Still hostname -I gives two IP's for the connection. inxi -i gives:
IP v4: 0.0.0.2/8 type: noprefixroute scope: global
IP v4: 192.168.1.6/24 type: dynamic noprefixroute scope: global

So, what did I do wrong? And how do I fix it?
