The Buffalo router address is the typical 192.168.11.1 which I was able to successfully ping:

When I click on System info on the router is when it says "communicating" and shows the pulblic ip address. Everything looks perfectly fine at that point.
I know the public IP address as it shows on the other 3 Linux OSs conky as well as on an app on my adroid phone, but on Precise it is blank along with N/A on all of the conkywx weather info.
As you can see on this screenshot of Precise taken before the problem occurred (where it currently says 'Lol Lol Lol' prior to the Grub rescue, etc.
I can ping the lan ip address successfully: 192.168.11.5.
Here is the output you requested. It connects to the internet just fine.
It is when I click "check connection" on the router that it gets the "DHCP Server not detected" error.

Conky cannot get weather info, Firefox doesn't connect to any site and sudo apt-get update gets nothing but errors.
So it looks like it is connecting but just not all the way.
