how to make pppoe connection as default route entry?

Why pppoe connections isn't the default route entry when connection is dialed?

On my system, it is the default route. How did you set up your pppoe? How do you dial your connection?

I created the pppoe connection with pppoe-setup.
I dial the connection with pppoe-start

ifconfig does shows the connection ppp0

I checked my ip from and it showed the ip of modem since my modem also auto dials and to override it, I dial.

Now when I make my ppp0 default route entry, then shows my pppo connection ip.

I don't want to do this manually.

Any ideas?
