There's an option somewhere in kppp that sets the default route to
the ppp connection, and you should select that.  If you have dynamic
addressing selected, then there should be no problem with your host's
individual address, even though it changes with every connection.  It
may also be that a remote server won't answer a ping, especially
if it's an NT server.
