Linux Mint/Ubuntu/Debian Dual NICs networks problem when enabling and disabling one device

The Scenario

You have dual NICs and you disable NIC1 which uses 192.168.1.1 as its gateway.  With NIC2 you enable it/connect it to another network which also has the gateway 192.168.1.1

Everything will work fine at this point.

When switching back to NIC1 even with NIC2 disabled and even unplugged, the OS basically can't pick up the new/updated ARP entry of the old device for 192.168.1.1 and perhaps thinks it is a security risk or spoof of some sorts and blocks it all.  You may think there is an issue somewhere else but the syslog shows the issue below.
