In terminal you can type /route add default/ [IP of router]....this is 
also possible with network manager by clicking on "administrator mode".

I'm very curious for the lack of sndstat device. I wonder if pcm drivers 
are compiled into the kernel configuration. Best bet is to post back 
with the detailed information for your system.
