I eventually found that 192.168.0.1 was the value from one of my tower
machines.  I tried other values for the last number as well and got
the same result.

I've had no problem with the machine where this came from.  I just
checked the laptop using a live version of Ubuntu and I was able to
connect to the Internet with it.  The hardware, it would seem, doesn't
appear to be the main problem.
