Question Can browse internet but cant ping (on F10)

Hello all.

I'm using FC10 on my box at work. It is behind an anthenticated proxy for internet connection.
In Gnome, I configured the Network Proxy through the GUI, as my browsers too.

So I can browse internet pages, install packages thru Add/Remove Software GUI, but I cant do it in the command line, using yum install, for example.
Then trying to figure it out, I saw that it cant reach the package mirrors.
It isnt a DNS problem, I set the /etc/resolv.conf correctly, as the host command works correclty.
I can ping the local pcs on the network too.
Firewall is disabled.
Below some simple tests:

[rtovo@davinci ~]$ ping mirrors.fedoraproject.org
connect: Network is unreachable
[rtovo@davinci ~]$ host mirrors.fedoraproject.org
mirrors.fedoraproject.org is an alias for wildcard.fedoraproject.org.
wildcard.fedoraproject.org has address
[rtovo@davinci ~]$ ping
connect: Network is unreachable
[rtovo@davinci ~]$ ping

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 27.580/66.164/143.251/54.508 ms
[rtovo@davinci ~]$ sudo iptables -L
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target prot opt source destination
[rtovo@davinci ~]$

What could be the problem?
Tried to search the foruns, google, but nothing worked.

Display the routing tables with "netstat -nr" , and see if you have a default route set.

The Gateway field was

Tried to set the gateway manually via /etc/sysconfig/network and it didn't work.

Then running route add default gw everything worked fine!

Thanks a lot!
