[SOLVED] Updated router, kept same settings, but Proxmox can't access internet externally

I have proxmox node, and LXCs set with static IPs. I can access them locally (e.g., the webUI for proxmox, ssh to LXCs) but they cannot access out to the internet (e.g., for apt update, and for their various functions).

I replaced my router with a newer router and I had the option to keep my existing settings. I migrated them over, and my gateway, etc. are all the same and my static IP addresses all show up in the router settings.

Proxmox is installed on a Tiny ThinkCenter and connected via ethernet to the router. Any advice for troubleshooting?

What says the output of ping google.com?

Ok, I think I got it sorted with
dhclient -v
to 'renew' the static IPs that were assigned on the old router, carried over to the new one, but for some reason not properly applied ... basically renewed the leases AFAIK. Appreciate the response.
