networking madness gone bizzare

i cannot get online with the usual tools such as kppp or pppconfig.
yet i can with net_monitor in mandrake 9.0. it reports no connection at first but then seems to conect.
im baffled as to why this is.
asked this question at just linux, someone said it was the DNS entries but they are fine.
is it the iptables?

im so baffled. can someone provide a solution?

it has been a while since I have had to do ppp stuff but my first suggestion would be to have a look ot your logs, it may be prudent to turn on (or turn up) debugging. pppd can throw out some very detailed infomation about what it is doing and this should give us a hint as to what the real problem may be.
