I second that. Scott you have configured your computer to do pppoe
(Point-to-Point Protocol Over Ethernet).
This protocol will not work with "normal" Ethernet.

You can see it in your ifconfig:
ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
         inet addr:216.183.152.159  P-t-P:216.183.152.1
Mask:255.255.255.255
         UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST  MTU:1492  Metric:1
         RX packets:1505 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
         TX packets:1478 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
         collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
         RX bytes:1035628 (1011.3 KiB)  TX bytes:166640 (162.7 KiB)


I would suggest to make a backup of your /etc/network/interfaces and
then replace it with:
- --------------------------------->
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

# This is a list of hotpluggable network interfaces.
# They will be activated automatically by the hotplug subsystem.
mapping hotplug
       script grep
       map eth0
<---------------------------------
