Question PPP stopped working

I recently got my winmodem working and I was able to dialup, browse with Firefox, etc. Now I dialup and I can ping an IP but hostnames in ping or a browser aren't resolved. I just set up my ethernet connection with netconfig, and I'm thinking DHCP or something else I set up there is causing this. Still, I looked around the /etc/ppp/ folder and I can't find anything suspicious. What in netconfig can mess up my DNS with PPP?

/etc/resolv.conf should have the DNS of your ISP. Mine looks like this
If yours is empty ask Google to show you pages that contain the word nameserver and your ISP's name.

That worked perfectly, thanks! I guess netconfig removed that DNS information for some reason.
