It sounds like pppd isn't setting a default route or updating dns
probably.  Have you tried pinging an IP address while connected?
generally you'll want to link /etc/ppp/options/resolv.conf to
/etc/resolv.conf, and make sure you're using the ppp options
"userpeerdns" and "defaultroute".  Check /etc/ppp/options and route -n
for a default route.
