Re: eth0 and ppp0 routing issues
ppp will not set a default route if a default route currently exists.
Next time try this:-
route del default
route add -net 172.16.x.x (172.16.0.0 if your netmask is 255.255.0.0)
This time ppp will set a default route for you.
The above may not be exactly right as it makes an assumption or two, but
it will be close. Contact me if you require further help.
