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.
