I'm no networking guru but I had similar issues trying to get my network up and running. I ran "route add default 192.168.1.1" at the command prompt which started to let me ping my router. I guess in your case you probably need 192.168.100.1. You may have already done this though.
Another thing I found that was to ping names (yahoo.com) I had to set my /etc/resolv.conf with
search <your domain>
nameserver <put in your ips dns address>
I don't know if this will be of any help to you but maybe...
