su - root
ifconfig ppp0
You should see two ip addresses.

Did you add you DNS server name for your ISP to /etc/resolv.conf?

if not
edit /etc/resolv.conf and add them somethng like this:

------------- /etc/resolv.conf -----------
serach you_isp.com
nameserver 111.111.111.111
nameserver 111.111.111.112
