it seems strange that batctl ping works but normal ICMP ping doesn't. A couple 
of things you could try are:
 * compare tt tables before and after you remove the router (batctl tg, batctl 
 * check arp tables (arp -an)
 * check using tcpdump (or batctl tcpdump) if the packets are actually sent, 
and if yes, where they get lost

I assume you are using batman-adv in a recent version for your tests? Also, 
are you using ad-hoc mode? If you need more help, you should try to describe 
your setup in more detail.
