It depends on your router. Usually routers have at least a GUI control panel
access and one of the pages shows recent attempts to connect and authenticate.
Are your running some sort of an access control list on the router and have
not included your MAC address?

The Rx bytes is zero - your router does not seem to respond.
Does this also stay zero if you set up a static address and route on the PC
and try to ping the router?

Try setting an address manually:
ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.20 broadcast 192.168.1.255 netmask 255.255.255.0
route add default gw 192.168.1.1 (assuming that this is your router)
and then try to ping it:
ping -c 3 192.168.1.1
If you can ping it and get a response then the problem is probably with the
signature.asc (This is a digitally signed message part.)
