How would we know without seeing your scripts?  (pppconfig/pon works OK
out of the box for most of us).  

Let's see the ppp.log, /etc/ppp/options, and pap-secrets (without your
username/password showing, of course!).

And what kind of modem do you have?  Unfortunately, some modems (like my
USR Sportster) need different connect strings to work right
