I know you said all the numbers are correct, but make sure the gateway
and your box are in the same subnet - I've seen people subtly typo the
netmask or gateway and go crazy tracking it down ...

You can also run all the commands in /etc/init.d/network from the
command line, which helps with troubleshooting.
