Question Problems with ADSL router

Hi.... i have problems configuring router for ADSL. I use Debian testing release.
I have ppp0 and eth0 interfaces working properly. Router with address in pinged sucsessfully from one of local computers with address for example. Pinging local computer from router or pinging an external address from local box is not sucssesfull too.

My routing table looks like this:

Dest. GW NM iface
BSN-access.dsl. * ppp0 * eth0
default BSN-access.dsl. ppp0

and I used these iptables comands:

iptables -t nat -P POSTROUTING DROP
iptables -t nat -A POSTROUTING -o ppp0 -j MASQUERADE

Can you post the output of
iptables -L
please? The two statements you
made can't possibly be your entire
rules-set? If it were you'd be dropping
everything before processing it.
