Ok, so arp isn't working; the IP address of the router isn't getting
resolved to its MAC address.  Nothing will work without that.  I've
occasionally been baffled by this on my systems, and sometimes manually
entering the arp mapping can enable connectivity.  It's worth a try, at
least to help narrow down the exact source of your problem:

'arp -s mac_address_of_the_router'
