PPPoE connects but does not work


Hello all,

I have been posting this on the India Broadband forums and Gentoo Forums - but I haven't been able to solve my problems there so I am posting the question here.

I am using the roaring penguin software to connect to the broadband connection that I have at home.
I used pppoe-setup to setup the connection (no firewalling, automatic dns and wlan0 as the interface), then typed pppoe-connect and was told that the connection was made. Here is my ifconfig.
Code:
googly rahul # ifconfig

However, I am unable to do anything with this connection. I can't browse the net (hangs at looking up .... ), can't ping ...

I really do not know what the problem is. If someone could shed some light on this, it would be really appreciated!

No changes. However ping is now exiting with unknown host name google.com! (with and without the interface)

ok, try to turn off all interfaces the turn the needed interfaces on again :

ifconfig down all
ifconfig wlan0 IP ESSID up
ifconfig ppp0 up

and disable IPv6, since i had a problem with a wireless network when IPv6 was enabled

(not sure of ifconfig syntax)

hope it works
