You have to enable tcp/ip networking in Windows...somewhere under
control panel I think, and you have to give ppp the -nat option on
your BSD box. If you've done that then your problem is possibly name
resolution on your Windows machine.
Fire up your connection & then:
C:> ping 192.168.1.3
C:> ping domain.test.com
C:> ping www.freebsd.org
C:> tracert www.freebsd.org
from one of your Windows machines & post the output.
$ netstat -r
on your gateway & post that to. Then we've got a bit to go on.
