Paul J Collins's [sneakums at zork.net] 19 lines of wisdom included:
:>It sounds like your have a NIC with a default route configured to use
:>it, and pppd is leaving that route alone (that only makes sense,
:>really). Try bringing the PPP link up and using /sbin/route to set a
:>default route for the PPP IP address, and see if that works.
:>If it does, you may need to find an option to force pppd to set a
:>default route. If there is no such option, you could probably do it
:>from the ip-up script.
Yup, exact same problem I encountered before, it's just a NIC
problem, I had stopped using it at this stage, so I just took it
out, look into the ppp options, there should be some override, or
else, take away the default route going to the NIC.
typing 'route' and pasting the output might be helpful as well.
Try what Paul suggested anyways..
Get your IP using ifconfig ppp0 (beside "inet addr:")
route add default gw <IP_ADDRESS> ppp0
