Nothing is wrong with what you are showing.  

Are you interfaces up?

Can you ping internal devices from the PIX?

Can you ping the gateway from the PIX?

Agreed it looks simple but complete. Do you have any logging turned on so we can see the log messages?

could the issue be "global (outside) 1 interface" which should be "global (outside) 1" ?

But can you ping the outside gateway from the pix itself?

I do not have access right now, can you provide your thinking for two scenario:

1. If I'm able to ping from PIX to WAN IP
2. If I'm not able to ping from PIX to WAN IP

If you are able to ping from pix to gateway ip then can you ping beyond it...say from the pix.  That would mean your internet connection is good and that your pix is able to reach the internet.

If you are not able to ping from pix to gateway ip then you have a connection or internet problem.
