definitely weird behavior.

no route is messing with your route tables - you can view these.

odd to get a DHCP lease, and IP, but no route.

can you log into the router itself to check logs?

can you run a traceroute on the Linux system to see where the drop is?

i like to manually set DNS servers, rather than use ISP nameservers. try switching those out. (e.g.,,, etc.)
[ but to be fair, this is a routing issue, not DNS, but DNS problems might be up next... ]

have you tried turning the router off and on again? :P

good luck!

best regards,
