Can't browse - can connect!

I am able to connect to my ISP via kppp, but can't get any data. While I can ping my ISP, I can't ping anyone else (destination host unreachable), and all web pages just time out.

This sounds like the same problem Romo had here.

I've tried all the different combinations in my pppd setup.

Don't really know what to look for in the logs.

I was able to connect at a friends house through his ethernet cable connection - just can't do it via dialup.
