So it seems to me that, contrary to the $subject line, your domU's
network is fine and it is only ping which is not working.

In that case it is more than likely that something in your network
infrastructure (like your IT department's firewalls for example, or your
dom0 or domU firewalls) are simply blocking ICMP (ping) traffic.

Perhaps is simply configured to not respond to pings?

If the gateway came from your IT departments infrastructure and you
believe it to be wrong then I think you need to speak to them about it.

If your DHCP server is serving up incorrect IP addresses then this
should be fixed on the server side.
