What do you get when you run 'ifconfig'?
What do you get when you run 'route -n'? The entry that starts with is your default route.

Do you have an entry in /etc/ppp/options that says 'defaultroute'.

If you already have a default route (say dialing up using ppp won't replace the default route already there. I run a script that deletes the default route and then dial's up.
