This looks okay, except for the broadcast address looks a little

Also, I have to say -- there is something very odd with the formatting
of that output.  Are you manually typing it in?  Here's some of the
output from ifconfig on one of my machines.  Unless you fiddled with
the broadcast address (or just mistyped it...) it should be
automatically set to ((inet addr & Mask) | ~Mask), which yours
definately isn't.

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:90:27:B4:1A:8A  
          inet addr:  Bcast:  Mask:

But, that doesn't really have too much to do with being able to ping
the default gateway.

So, which is it?  Why are you pinging something which is obviously not
your default gateway?
