First problem; my 'hosts' file backup was recovered. So I think that was

I touched it.  Did I get it back to its original shape? I tried
replacing 127.0.0.1 with 192.168.1.3 which 'ifconfig' and 'hostname -va'
say is my inet addr.  (Why it is not 192.168.1.1 is a question for
another day).

My ifcfg-eth0 script says:
# nVidia Corporation MCP51 Ethernet Controller
DEVICE=eth0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
HWADDR=00:1a:92:e5:dc:47
ONBOOT=yes
DHCP_HOSTNAME=CASE
NM_CONTROLLED=no
TYPE=Ethernet
DNS1=192.168.1.1

'route' also lists the default as 192.168.1.1 not xxx.xxx.x.3

If you are using DHCP, you usually do not want to specify your name servers. (DNS1)
Also, your default route should point to your gateway to the
Internet. If you are using a firewall/router, it should point to
that address.
You may also want to look at /etc/resolv.conf and see what name
server(s) you have listed.
I don't remember if you said, gut is your problem that you can not
connect using host names, but you can using IP addresses?
Also, is the network service running, or the NetworkManager service
running? Because the way you have ifcfg-eth0, it does not look like
NetworkManager is controlling it.
service network status
service NetworkManager status
