VPN pptp problem

Hi there, I have read all posts here about this issue but I didn't found any solution for my problem. I have an VPN account on local network to connect to the internet which includes username and a password. This works fine with win, both with pptp or l2tp but when it comes to Linux then it's not so easy. I have installed the pptp for Linux, I even read the howto from linuxquestions which talks about setting up pptp server and client on Slackware. I used webmin module to create a VPN account and I successfully established a connection. However, at first I can open only some web sites such as google or so and after very short time somehow the traffic stops totally so I can't open anything although the VPN connection is still running. The VPN server on the local network is mikrotik. I must say I'm not very familiar with VPN, I'm better with pppoe which for me works out of a box. I also noticed very strange thing that when I try to connect to VPN, after that I can't connect with rp-pppoe directly to my ISP or vice versa. I have the same username both in VPN and pppoe accounts and somehow ppptp mixes the passwords which are not same so I need to correct that every time in pptp or pppoe configuration.

Please help me.
