Where do you have your DNS pointing to ? What happens if you use the
numbers instead of the names ?

How did you supply the nat option to ppp, and did you also supply the
default route ? In /etc/rc.conf you should have:

ppp_enable="NO"
ppp_mode="auto"
ppp_nat="YES"
ppp_profile="whatever-yours-is-called"

been a while since I ussed dialup, but I am fairly sure thats all I did,
and some of those options may now be the default!

-bat.
