PPP won't Connect

I have an ethernet card connect to a LAN, and a modem on my own system which I wish to use to connect to the internet, I can dial and connect to my isp, however I can only ping the ip address given in ifconfig after I have connected, no other ip's can be pinged, and no program can connect to anything.

this is my ppp status in ifconfig:

ppp0 Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol
inet addr: P-t-P139.134.77.226 Mask:
RX packets:69 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:74 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:3
RX bytes:5580 (5.4 Kb) TX bytes:6017 (5.8 Kb)

And my routing tables:

Destination Gateway Genmask Flags Metric Ref Use Iface UH 0 0 0 ppp0 U 0 0 0 eth0 U 0 0 0 lo UG 0 0 0 ppp0 UG 0 0 0 eth0

I know its a little garbled, hopefully someone out there can understand what is happening, if you have any ideas...please help

Please note I have a gateway mapped to use the ip address of the ptp in ppp
