To my inexpert eye that looks OK and says your gateway/router is at

Try issuing the command (as root)

ifconfig eth0 broadcast

to fix your broadcast address. Any improvement? Check output of 'ifconfig' (on its own) again. If nothing you could try setting a static IP address with

ifconfig eth0 netmask broadcast

and trying again. These won't change anything permanently. When you reboot you will be back to your original config.

Do you have a file /etc/sysconfig/network ? If so you can probably make permanent changes to your network config in there.
