With reference to your concern you can try to disable the firewall and all the other security centers installed in the computer. Once after disabling then try to ping the IP address and the default gateway and check status...

Hi, I would like to know what's the router that you are using? There is another way of checking if the WAP is still detected or not. If your router has a DHCP client's table it would also be good to check if the WAP is detected and shows up on the list. You can also do arp -a again while the WAP is connected to your router (this way you can check if it is able to grab an ip address from the router).
Please check this link for additional steps:

Did you check the DHCP client's table of the router? After all the reset that you made on the device it still does not show up? Then most probably the device is no longer talking. No longer functioning.
BTW the mac address FF:FF:FF:FF (http://wiki.wireshark.org/Gratuitous_ARP) A gratuitous ARP request is an AddressResolutionProtocol request packet where the source and destination IP are both set to the IP of the machine issuing the packet and the destination MAC is the broadcast address ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff. Ordinarily, no reply packet will occur. A gratuitous ARP reply is a reply to which no request has been made.
