cannot ping anything

See if you can ping your own interface. You should be able to ping it on
both the loop back 127.0.0.1 and the 192.168.1.128 address.
If you can ping those and still not the router at 192.168.1.1 check for
other defaultrouter statements. If you have only one of these statements,
I would bring down the interface and bring it up manually until you find
the correct settings. For instance you may need to set the line speed 1t
10 MBs, or 100 MBs or 1000 Mbs, or set the duplex setting. Oh and check
the LED's on your ethernet interface and router and hub/switches to be sure
you didn't knock a cable loose.
