I can ping the router

other than that I wish I knew what you just said????

SIOCADDRT means that when you tried to add a route, you didn't have access to the gateway. That could mean the interface wasn't up, the address was wrong or the netmask was wrong.

I'd try:
ifdown eth0
ifup eth0
to make it go through the motions again.  If it is still the same try:
traceroute -n  some_internet_address
and see how far your packets go.

You can use "ifconfig" to see your configuration, "route" to see your routes (but they won't include the one that failed). Something must be wrong with the combination of your address, netmask and gateway setting.

I get so frustrated people either talk over my head or down to me

why isn't there any place for someone who isn't a geek but does know a
fair amount about these machines.

There's a lot learn and most people only bother when they are forced to.

I've complained about this for
years, only two manuals are written.
1 for dummies books
2 uber geek.

The way to learn from something other than bad experience is to break things on purpose, then put them back together at a convenient time.

is it any wonder people put up with 2 hours on hold to be told it is
someeone else's fault.

I'll get off my soapbox but it is probably the main reason Linux
doesn't spread.

Everything breaks and this isn't more complicated than any other networking device.
