Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Seems to be your gateway to the outside world. The machine at your ISP that is routing all of your traffic. Here's a snippet of one of mine, also pppoe, eathlink, and the route table will look a little funkier as its an older kernel:
user-112urs1.bi * 255.255.255.255 UH 0 0 0 ppp0
localnet * 255.255.255.0 U 0 0 0 eth1
loopback * 255.0.0.0 U 0 0 0 lo
default user-112urs1.bi 0.0.0.0 UG 0 0 0 ppp0
Actually, getting my head out of my ass and looking at routing tables again, I am mistaken, as it seems that 10.7.31.1 is not actually the gateway's IP, which should be visible from ifconfig, but infact that is your IP. This is rather odd but believable as a lot of ISPs are really cheap with their static IPs.
Again, ignore that post where I claimed I had my head up my ass. Its out, I'm looking around, and that 144.x.x.x is actually your IP, but oddly enough you have a ptp connection with a machine on a class A private network, which is weird. Yeah, it indeed seems your gateway is on a private network, which means that something up the ladder is NAT'ing for you.
