Default gateway is typically provided in DHCP. If you switch to a static IP address, then I think you'll need to add a static route. The ISP will provide their gateway IP address. Configure the route table and add a static route to 0.0.0.0, subnet mask 0.0.0.0, via the ISP gateway address.
You'll want to setup DNS servers as well. You may use DNS servers provided by your ISP or a third-party service if you prefer. For example, OpenDNS at 126.96.36.199 (primary), 188.8.131.52 (secondary).
Will you let us know how it goes? Best,
Thanks cj! That was exactly what was missing (adding the default route).
They are up and running!
