netstat -r

You should see a default route pointing to your router.  I'm betting you
don't have one.  

You can configure DHCP to grab the DNS and default route info when it
gets the IP from the router.  You'll just have to make sure your router
gives out the info.  If not, then you'll have to set default route and
your /etc/resolv.conf by hand.
